i've installed webmin on serveral obsd machines. on one machine, which i upgraded from 3.9 to 4.0, webmin shows the perl modules and installs newer modules etc. on a different machine, which i reinstalled 4.0 on and installed webmin, webmin doesn't show any modules for perl (i think in the core-package are some integrated at least) nor installs it any. it fetches the packages and then stalls forever after fetching it. in the action log is no entry, that webmin does anything.
fwiw, here's the perl-related output of 'ps aux':
root 28163 0.0 1.3 3364 3256 ?? Ss 12:06PM 0:00.11 /usr/bin/perl /root/webmin-1.310/miniserv.pl /etc/webmin/min

i wanted to install the module Net::SSLeay.
upgraded to webmin 1.310 today. webmin 1.300 didn't work either with the perl modules. it was working on 3.9 before the reinstall.
if more information is needed, i will bring it in.
