    Ubuntu 9.04. Have followed instructions on webmin page "Installing on Debian", "using the Webmin APT repository".

    When I do the apt-get install webmin, the first 13.8meg d/l appears to proceed OK. But the second larger d/l (86Mb) fails. This is the webmin_1.470_all.deb file. It says there is a size mismatch.

    Any ideas?

    Tks,
    mark

      I think I may be getting confused over the size issue. I can now see the .deb file is 13.8M. I guess the message is saying that this will be expanded to 86Mb after d/l. So it is just the one file d/l that is not working. Not two. I suspect this is due to a corporate firewall issue I need to sort out. It was just the "size mismatch" message which threw me for a while.

      Tks,
