CentOS 5.5 Clean Install GPL Fails

I get:

INFO - Disabling SELinux during installation…
/usr/sbin/setenforce: SELinux is disabled
INFO - setenforce 0 failed: 1
INFO - Download of http://:@software.virtualmin.com/rhel/5/x86_64/virtualmin-release-latest.noarch.rpm Succeeded.
error: open of <!DOCTYPE failed: No such file or directory
error: open of HTML failed: No such file or directory
error: open of PUBLIC failed: No such file or directory

Hrm, it looks like something is awry with the parameters it’s passing to the software repository. That’s odd :slight_smile:

It appears to not realize it’s trying to install the GPL version of Virtualmin… what do you get when running these commands:

grep ‘SERIAL=’ install.sh’

grep ‘VER=’ install.sh

I get this:

grep ‘SERIAL=’ install.sh’

grep ‘VER=’ install.sh


I have got a very minimal CentOS 5.5. Could I be missing some key ingredient?

Webmin will install OK…

Hmm, it sounds like something may have been corrupted in your install.sh file… the SERIAL= line should have the label “GPL” after it.

My suggestion would be to go back to the “Download” link above, and to grab a new copy of the install.sh script, and to try running that.


First - thank you very much for your help with this. I now have it installed.

At first I was doing this:

* cd /tmp
* wget -O install.sh http://software.virtualmin.com/cgi-bin/install.cgi
* /bin/sh install.sh

With that I had the problem.

But when I did this it was OK!

* cd /tmp
* wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh
* /bin/sh install.sh
