When either upgrading to 1.220 or installing fresh in
CentOS 2.1, the network configuration module is lost.
When I manually put the URL in
(https://localhost:10000/net/index.cgi), I get this
message: Access denied
: User admin is not allowed to use the Network
Configuration module.
When I try to manually install the net.wbm module, I get
this message:
Failed to install uploaded module : Module net does not
support this
operating system (Redhat Linux 2.1AS). The module is
present in RedHat Linux Enterprise 2.1AS as well as
CentOS 3.x and CentOS 4.x. Webmin version 1.230
does not fix the problem.

    What does the file /etc/webmin/config contain on your system?
    This is where the OS name and version detected by Webmin are
    stored, and they may be incorrect ..

    Are you using the Webmin RPM package from www.webmin.com?
    There are some errors in that config file that suggest it
    may be from another vendor ..
    I suggest un-installing webmin and getting version 1.230
    from www.webmin.com instead.

    I only use the tarballs from webmin.com and usually upgrade
    via the upgrade module in webmin. However this problem
    occurs whether I upgrade or do a fresh install on a fresh
    install of CentOS 2.1. I believe the problem first occurred at
    1.220 but am not sure.

    Just as a comparison, here is the /etc/webmin/config file from
    a test box freshly installed with CentOS 2.1 with no updates and
    the tarball installation from webmin.com. The network configuration
    module is not available.

    [root@localhost webmin]# cat config
    path=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin
    passwd_pindex=1
    passwd_cindex=2
    find_pid_command=ps auwwwx | grep NAME | grep -v grep | awk '{ print $2 }'
    passwd_file=/etc/shadow

    Ok, this is definately a webmin bug.
    What does the file /etc/redhat-release contain on your
    CentOS system?

    Thank you. Here are the contents of /etc/redhat-release and /etc/centos-release

    [root@localhost etc]# cat redhat-release
    Red Hat Linux Advanced Server release 2.1AS (Slurm)
    [root@localhost etc]# cat centos-release
    CentOS Linux Advanced Server release 2.1AS (Slurm)
    [root@localhost etc]#

    Ok, I see the problem now.
    The work-around is to rename that /etc/redhat-release file,
    install Webmin, and then rename it back again. Future
    versions of Webmin will have a better fix..

    I uninstalled webmin with the uninstall.sh script. I renamed
    /etc/redhat-release. I installed webmin from the tarball. It
    installed as a generic linux 2.4 and I still have no network
    configuration module. did I miss something? sorry.

    Try the 1.231 development version of webmin, from
    http://www.webmin.com/devel.html
    It has a better fix for this issue..

    OK, with an uninstall and install of 1.231 I now have a
    Network Configuration module on CentOS 2.1. Thank you
    very much.
