There has been many changes to PKGBUILD. Lots of clean up and updates.

Please test and report if any issue.(version 1.831-7)

PS: We now also have usermin AUR package in case anyone is interested.

Webmin now uses standard PAM authentication instead of copying crypt from shadow file. Hence makes it more secure and flexible.

Also restriction of access only from 127.0.0.1 is removed. (Otherwise whole purpose of webmin is lost). Your firewall should have port 10000 closed anyway. Please configure your firewall if you want to allow access remotely.

I installed webmin successfully on ESPRESSObin. All I need to do is add 'aarch64' to PKGBUILD and fix perl-encode-detect, which can be seen in my comment over there.

However I also have the same issue as @tjc where Authen::PAM is not found, except reinstalling perl-authen-pam doesn't help.

Turned out Authen/PAM.pm is install on /home/alarm/perl5/lib/perl5/aarch64-linux-thread-multi/Authen/PAM.pm, which is not in @INC.

Before that package is fixed I have to use no_pam=1 and pam_only=0 in /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf.

This package only worked (Started) for me after I separately installed perl-authen-pam

Is this package missing that as a dependency?

@mozzi32 - install perl-module-build package and try.

Update: Problem fixed, refer to thread for solution

I've installed the latest version of perl, pam and perl-authen-pam prior to installing webmin. When I try to start webmin, I get the following error about pam.

There is one other that seems to be having the same issue: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=225986

Yes, that fixed the problem. Thanks again!

Can you try rebuilding and reinstalling package perl-authen-pam? (with new perl)

May be new perl version is not compatible with older PAM module and hence requires recompiling?
