I have successfully install Virtualmin on Debian Etch 4.0 - all works good.
After that I try to do an upgrade from Debian Etch to Lenny and see unmet dependencies:
The following packages are BROKEN:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
virtualmin-base: Depends: proftpd-common which is a virtual package.
Depends: libsasl2 which is a virtual package.
On Debian Lenny this packages named as proftpd and libsasl2-2.
When I change dependencies in deb package manually, all installs good.
Will this be fixed in future versions of Virtualmin or this is a problem in Debian Lenny?
As Eric mentioned, we do not support unreleased operating systems. We just can’t. There are too many variables, too few people to maintain all of the packages and repositories (we already have more than a dozen repositories), and too many ways for beta software to go wrong. So, no need to ask…if the OS isn’t released yet, we definitely do not support it and have no plans to do so.
I’m expecting to release support for lenny this weekend.
Support isn’t instant…packages have to be built, install script has to be updated, repo setup (and maintenance scripts updated to know about them), and lots of install testing has to be done (this is the time consuming part–every test run takes 20-30 minutes, so it’s a very long cycle).
I’m really looking forward to this release. I currently have ispconfig 2.x installed and running on Lenny, after uninstalling it are there additional steps that I may need to take in configuring my system (specifically, mail, database, php, apache, firewall, bind) to work with Virtualmin? I understand from reading the forums that I can firewall off outside access to bind port as well as long as it is running locally. Other than that, everything is running off of one server.
It’s simplest to get Virtualmin working on a fresh install (and one without any live sites). There’s an install.sh script that configures all sorts of goodies for you, but it’s not recommended to use that if you’re running a live system.
It’s of course possible to get Virtualmin working with a live system, but that’s the hard way
Regarding BIND – you could firewall off the BIND port, but if you’re providing DNS service for your domains, no one external to your server would be able to do DNS lookups on the domains you’re hosting.
And Joe is hard at work on the Lenny support, it should be available soon!
I’m close to releasing it, though I won’t be able to finish it tonight. My dog got sick last week, and we’ve been in and out of vets for the past several days, getting tests, X-rays, ultrasound, etc. She’s having surgery tomorrow, and hopefully, I’ll be back to full throttle soon after (she’ll be staying over for two days for recovery, so I’ll have to be on the road a bit to visit her, but otherwise I’ll be back to work).
Apologies for the delay. I intended to roll it out over the weekend, but that’s when things got really rough for my dog.
I’m afraid it is quite serious (it’s a growth on her spleen, and a majority of such turn out to be malignant, and outcomes are generally not good), and she’s kinda old. But, I’ve got the best veterinary surgical specialists in the valley working on her today, so I’m hopeful we’ll be one of the lucky ones with a good outcome.
I’m keeping my mind on work today, and I’ll know more by tonight.
