Fedora Core 5

How long will it be (roughly) till there is FC5 support in Virtualmin/Webmin?

It's due for release on the 20th March and I'll be looking to have it installed at that time as it's coinciding with a box rebuild.

Hey Paul,

I plan to add FC5 to the supported distributions within a couple of days of release of FC5. I need a little testing time, and I want to build against the "release" versions of Apache and other stuff. Fedora is, by far, the easiest distribution for me to support because yum is its default package management system (or, close enough, since no one that has the choice uses up2date over yum). I could do a full Fedora install in about five lines of shell script, plus an RPM in the yum repository, if it were the only OS I had to support. ;-)

That said, building and testing does take some time, and we're getting to the point where I don't roll anything out without quite a bit of internal testing. Too many users to be experimental, despite the EA version and warnings still being on everything.

Excellent.

Is there a demo version available yet? I'd like to test pro, either on my box or some web based demo site?

FYI FC5 has now shipped

Once you provide support for FC5 i'll be buying myself a license :)

I downloaded it today, am installing now, and the FC5 build system is already installing (I use mock for builds, and qemu for testing). Will be built, tested, and ready for use in a day or two.

That's great :)
I hope it will be available soon. I'm just waiting to achieve my new installation :)

Almost done. Not more complicated, just have lots on the plate. Probably tonight or tomorrow it will be finished.

Hey guys,

Here's the status of things, with more precision:

All of the packages that must be rebuilt, have been, with the exception of ProFTPd and php4. They are untested, but I expect no problems--Fedora is a really well understood platform at this point, since all of the initial development was done on Fedora, so it has had the most testing.

ProFTPd 1.2.10 (the latest stable release) doesn't build against OpenSSL 0.9.8, which is all that Fedora provides a devel package for. I'm looking into whether I should patch ProFTPd, or just go with the current 1.3.0 release candidate from the ProFTPd people, which does build against 0.9.8. I suspect the latter is the better choice for everyone, but I will need to do some testing to be sure 1.3.0 works well with Virtualmin and the ProFTPd Webmin module. Actually, now that I look, the Fedora Extras folks have decided it for me--they've packaged up 1.3.0, and since our policy is always to provide identical packages if any "official" source offers the package, I will simply provide a rebuild of their package, and do whatever we have to do to make our stuff compatible with that version.

I'm not sure how php4 will go, as I've just started building it (now that I've solved the ProFTPd package issue). I don't expect major problems, but it is a very big package with a lot of dependencies.

Anyway, you all will be the first to know when Fedora Core 5 successfully installs. Again, I really expect it to happen very soon.

will there be a new release of the setup file too or can we still use the old install.sh? will the release be anounced on the frontpage?

Just a quick answer to this query and an update on the progress on FC5:

The same install.sh file will work (though a new one is coming pretty soon with some fixes and small enhancements--I suspect the PHP4/PHP5+mod_fastcgi updates will be in the next release in a few days).

Now for the update:

Everything is built and in the repository.

I'm running a test install now, and I expect no major troubles. It is <i>very</i> likely that Fedora Core 5 will be supported by the end of the day.

Core 5 installed and seems to run without a hitch!

Have at it, and let me know what blows up.

BTW-It's only available on i386 architecture systems at the moment. x86_64 is building and should be ready in another day or so.

hi
installation went on without problems hurra :)

but i got this error while connecting to the webmin:

hi

after adding a new domain (virtual server) apache doesn't start anymore:

Failed to start apache :
Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 1009 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
Invalid command 'AuthDigestFile', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
[[FAILED]]

that's error he gives (I'm correcting it manually now...

i am also having problems with apache, seems that virtualmin might not like running off dhcp (i currently am on my virtual test machine)

changed to static.

hmm no edit function on posts?

seems changing the variable NameVirtualHost from

NameVirtualHost :80

to

NameVirtualHost *:80

has resolved the problem (apache starts anyhow)

moral of this story, dont use DHCP virtualmin doesnt seem to be able to detect your ip then :(

now i have the authdigestfile issue - joyous :D

ok how do i fix it manually (aside from disabling dav logins?)

*g*
I simply deleted the line in the apache.conf as I don't need it hrhr :) that was my only solution to get apache work :)
I looked in the template file but didn't find it...

Hope there will be another solution... Joe will do that surely for us :)

Hey guys,

Looks like Virtualmin/Webmin doesn't know about the new syntax for specifying Digest authentication sources...it has been improved a bit in version 2.2 of Apache, and now the syntax looks like:

AuthDigestProvider file
AuthUserFile /path/to/davusers
AuthGroupFile /path/to/davgroups

I've filed a bug, and a new version will probably be out in a day or so with the fix. Here's the bug for those following along at home:

http://www.virtualmin.com/bug-tracker/bug?bug%5fnumber=334

Thanks for the heads up.

I can't foind out why I still have the problem I mentioned above (not the digest thing)
also I wanted to know in the new template isn't there any more the virtualmin and webmin tab?

Also I can't create subdomains, I get an error &quot;IP Missing&quot; but I don't have the option to give one...

Hi again another prob I found is that the mailman can't be disable in the module confiuration, it's activated by default... so I need to disable it everytime manually...

This is a known bug which is just reported a few days ago.
If you turn off &quot;All virtual servers use namevirtualhost&quot; or whatever it is (not at home), it should use the IP which the subdomain seems to be checking for.

I hardcoded my one for now to the internal IP and works.
I also patched my virtualmain to have pretty icons instead of ugly square buttons but unfortunately i have to make a 'diff' file when the new ones come out.. :'(
