Packages not found during installation


during the installation of Cloudmin under a fresh centos 5.4 I see these messagess:

No package perl-IO-Tty available.
No package perl-Authen-PAM available.

I thinks that these packages are not available in the defaults centos repository.

Please verify the installation script.


I did a new installation with Centos 5.5. Following packages missing:

  • perl-Authen-PAM
  • perl-IO-Tty
  • perl-JSON

I made a new repo:


name=Dag RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
includepkgs=perl-Authen-PAM perl-Convert-BER perl-Mon perl-Net-SSLeay perl-IO-Tty perl-JSON

Now installed without error but webmin doesn’t work.
