@amish okay, interestingly enough it works for me without Net::WebSocket::Server

@amish whatever you want to do is fine, I'm just passing along the message.

@hexadecagram - As the lead developer has already mentioned. I am not comfortable with fallback to accessing /etc/shadow file directly. Arch Linux has decent pam configuration. Webmin uses default Arch PAM configuration. See webmin.pam file in source package, it indirectly calls default PAM configuration of Arch Linux.

But people using special config can always edit their webmin configuration.

@amish, after I posted the link to the bug report I submitted, I was told by the lead developer that enabling pam_only=1 by default is not advised. May want to consider that.

@autinerd - I added perl-io-tty in optdepends. But xterm (Terminal) module also needs Net::WebSocket::Server which is not AUR or Arch repos. So I doubt module will work without it.

Hi, Adding perl-io-tty as optional dependency for the Terminal module would be awesome :)

@amish: The issue I was experiencing has been resolved. FWIW,

@amish. Could you please update webmin to the current version? I normally use paru to install and update AUR packages, and I'm not sure what I'd need to change in the PKGBUILD to download and build the current version. Thanks.

@hexadecagram Best place to get the answers is webmin's official support page.

I currently cannot get Webmin to start. Anyone else seeing this? In my case, /etc/pam.d/webmin DOES exist. I've rebuilt and reinstalled both webmin and perl-authen-pam with no luck.
