Hi, first of all, I am a total noob to linux so pardon me if I ask some obvious questions. I am good with programming generally but have always developed on windows then I just upload to a linux server at a host company. Now I need to set up my own linux server for a project which requires setting up virtual hosts for clients. I chose Debian. Unfortunately I had installed Apache-Mysql-Php (setting up my dev environment) before realizing virtualmin that i need for setting up the virtual hosts recommends a fresh install. I tried to install it anyway using the Virtualmin GPL but it keeps failing. See error message below
Package scponly is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
Package libgd2-xpm is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
So I try to download the packages but got the dev versions for both. dpkg --install package.deb gave me processing error but I double clicked the packages and the installer ran to completion. However, virtualmins still giving same error.
My question is how do I proceed with the install, do I get a fresh Debian install by all means or can I still work around this?
I am running the latest version of Vitrtualmin GPL on Debian jessie. thanks for any help.
