#39 installs into source dir on OpenBSD 3.4


Dear All,

I am trying to install v1.150 on OpenBSD 3.4,
untarballed/unzipped, ran "./setup.sh" and it starts up
fine but says it is installing to "/temp/webmin-1.150/". I
dont want it installed in that directory, I want it installed
to default locations, plain jane, straight install, nothing
custom whatsoever. I dont think I instructed it to do
this. Did I? I even uninstalled & reinstalled and same
result. If any one knows how to get this to install to
where the default installation directories are, it would be
most appreciated. I thought about copying a few of the
*.pl files to a few locations but then thought better and
didnt do that. It really has me stumped. I checked the
start script in the "/etc/init.d/webmin" and it points to
the 'tmp' directory also. In fact, that was how I knew
somehting was odd, I went to restart webmin & it
couldnt find "miniserv.pl" since it was no longer located
at "/tmp/webmin-1.150/miniserv.pl" any longer, which,
orf course, it wasnt, I nuked that after I finished
installing it.

Thanks very much.

    The default behaviour of Webmin is to run out of the source
    If you'd prefer it to be installed elsewhere, you can run
    ./setup.sh /usr/local/webmin
    and it will run out of /usr/local/webmin . The source
    directory can then be deleted after the install is complete ..
