    Webmin RPM installation - Dependencies Error

    Using Mandrake 9.0 and version .990 of Webmin (it came with Mandrake).
    I want to upgrade to the latest version (1.060) of Webmin, but when I downloaded the rpm and attempted to upgrade, I got a dependency error.
    This is what it looks like:

    rpm -U webmin-1.060-1.noarch.rpm
    error: failed dependencies:
    /bin/sh is needed for webmin-1.060-1
    /usr/bin/perl is needed for webmin-1.060-1

    Any ideas?

    ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh will fix one dep. To fix the other you must install the perl rpm.

    Sorry, perl is already the newest version.
