    Default HOWTO: Webmin install on Gentoo

    From a freshly loaded image:


    Code:
    emerge --sync
    sync your local list of available packages with the latest portage tree


    Code:
    emerge portage
    upgrade / install Portage


    Code:
    emerge webmin
    install webmin


    Code:
    /etc/init.d/webmin start
    start webmin

    And if you want Webmin to load automatically every time your server boots run this command:

    Code:
    rc-update add webmin default
    Now access webmin in the usual way.

    That's probably to your advantage. Gentoo is a minimal install, so while you have to install and configure everything yourself, it's probably the most slim template available, making it especially applicable to some of the lower plans.

    !!! EXACTLY !!!

    I agree completely to the minimal approach.

    I made other OSīs since 20 years now and i am a guru in them,
    but i came to Gentoo via Redwall Firewall and i must say that
    Gentoo is perfectly designed as it is....

    To everybody: Take your time to learn how Linux/Gentoo works - it will for sure an investment in your personal development and future...

    My 2 cents,

    The rc-* tools are deprecated in favor of eselect:
    Code:
    eselect rc add webmin default
    Slightly more verbose, but overall eselect is a better setup management framework for Gentoo.

    Likewise, the following:
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/webmin start
    start webmin
    should be replaced with:
    Code:
    eselect rc start webmin
