Operating system: AlmaLinux
OS version: 8.3RC
I figured I may as well make this a new topic since the other one was more about the CentOS > AlmaLinux Migration, which didn’t work out as well as I’d hoped.
For this installation I wiped the little server and installed AlmLinux 8.3 RC directly, then immediately installed Virtualmin using the installer I hacked and referenced in the other thread. I’ll upload it somewhere if anyone else wants to play.
The only errors in the install log:
warning: virtualmin-release-latest.noarch.rpm: Header V4 RSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 60d62a6b: NOKEY error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock (Resource temporarily unavailable) error: /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-webmin: key 1 import failed. error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock (Resource temporarily unavailable) error: /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-virtualmin: key 1 import failed. error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock (Resource temporarily unavailable) error: /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-virtualmin-6: key 1 import failed.
Everything installed properly and the post-install configuration was successful.
However, there’s still the quirk with Apache showing up on the dashboard, although it is running (and presumably working because the preview function works).

So I have to figure out what that’s all about. Probably some stupid error on my part. Or maybe AlmaLinux installs a different Apache than what VM was expecting.
Nonetheless, this is promising. I still have to puzzle over the Apache indicator, but at least the system installed without barfing and seems to work, even if it doesn’t necessarily know that it’s working.
