I'm trying to update from 2.102 to 2.105-2 but I keep getting this:

@jrdn - No its not bad path or special character

See PKGBUILD (of current release 2.105-2) for my comments on where the starting point can be to fix this bug.

Something changed in webmin 2.104 where enable-collection.pl runs in background, creates config file as directory and there is some race condition.

Race is between find and sed. Find sees the file as normal regular file and passes it to sed. In the meantime, enable-collection.pl changes config file to a directory, so when sed runs, it sees that this is not a regular file but a directory so sed throws error.

So I disabled enable-collection.pl and issue is resolved. This however is just a workaround and not a fix. Fix needs to be done by webmin by detecting why config file becomes a directory when enable-collection.pl is run.

@wwenigma No problem.

This issue may have to do with bad path or folder naming with whatever is listed before the .../system-status/config file, causing sed to be provided a path with an unintelligible character. I could do some more digging but want to see what @amish wants to do as he's the pkg owner. The current provided fix can be sufficient to prevent issues in the future, but may need additional error checking in the case of a bad or unusable file (if such a case were to arise in reality).

@johnbao

After cloning webmin, in webmin directory modify PKGBUILD file line 181 from

find "$pkgdir"/etc/webmin -type f -exec sed -i -e "s:$pkgdir::g" {} \+

to

find "$pkgdir"/etc/webmin -type f -exec sed -i -e "s:$pkgdir::g" {} \;

Then makepkg will run properly for me, under Arch linux.

@jrdn: thanks.

Under Manjaro try to install Webmin, I have following error:

/var/tmp/pamac-build-bao/perl-authen-pam/PKGBUILD: line 30: make: command not found ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting...

I need your help.

@jrdn

I cannot understand your comment:

This isn't exactly the best fix, but it will allow makepkg to continue on. Just tested this. Change the find -exec sed line to execute sed in separate lines.

-- find "$pkgdir"/etc/webmin -type f -exec sed -i -e "s:$pkgdir::g" {} +

++ find "$pkgdir"/etc/webmin -type f -exec sed -i -e "s:$pkgdir::g" {} \;

which file should I change?

@jrdn

It works!

Thanks

@amish Thanks for the information, did not know it was discussed. I do see your comment on github (https://github.com/webmin/webmin/discussions/2076). So I guess it is your prerogative on which to choose. Meh? shrug

Hello,

Today's update on Manjaro Xfce with:

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/webmin.git
cd webmin
env LC_ALL=C makepkg -si

(or with yay, or pamac-manager)

fails with:

...
sed: couldn't edit /home/h2/Installs/git/webmin/pkg/webmin/etc/webmin/system-status/config: not a regular file
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
    Aborting...

@jrdn - I was waiting for next release because webmin was releasing minor fixes rapidly and I was waiting for it to be stable.

Also I am not using github because sourceforge and github sources differ and webmin author recommended to use sourceforge one as official one.
