I really want to give ClearLinux a try, but I need to know if its possible to install webmin on it. Usually I install it using a deb file, which doesn’t work on ClearLinux. Anyone using webmin and if so, how did you install it?
Try using the tar file they have for download. It should be distro independent and run.
Thanks for replying. I see that ClearLinux isnt listed on their website as being specifically supported,
should I choose “Generic Linux”?
webmin is a web appliance type of thing, like wordpress and phpmyadmin. For those type of deployments, generally the “generic tarball” method (extract, place in webroot, adjust configs as needed) is simple and complete enough that packaging isn’t really needed (these applications often self-update, too).
