SOLVED: Webmin installation failure

Postby mckinneyg » Sat Jan 11, 2020 10:00 pm

The one click Webmin installation gave no errors and seemed to complete the installation. The hyper link does not work and then log review shows installation did not occur.

What version of Amahi are you using?

You might try uninstalling, then reinstalling.

I have tested the app several times and installs with no issues.

Could there be a connectivity issue with your HDA?

Amahi 11 and have tried a half dozen install and uninstall. I even did a full re-installation of Amahi 11 following https://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Amahi_11_Install using a USB. I have gone thru all the steps successfully for the network troubleshooter and it says I can turnoff DHCP, but my network becomes unusable so I still have it on. I have installed 18 other apps without issue.

I presume you used the Express DVD.

If so then that’s the reason.

The app does not install correctly due to an issue with it.

There’s a file that you need to change to make it work correctly.

See bug 2389 for details.

The bug is not clear on what needs to change in the 3 files as a work around. Please elaborate in the bug report or reply to the post.

Change Generic release 27 (Generic) to Fedora release 27 (Twenty Seven).

You may need to reboot afterwards.

Edited file "/etc/redhat-release". Changed “Generic release 27 (Generic)" to "Fedora release 27 (Twenty Seven)". This allowed the one click install work for Webmin. Thanks for your help.

No problem.

Marking as resolved.
