Webmin doesn't work anymore

Unread post by LuftWafflePilot » 2022-11-29, 17:01

I use Webmin to do basic maintenance of Linux VM running on my home server (because I don't know crap about Linux and the command line is a mystery to me :mrgreen: ), and after updating it today from version 2.000 to I think 2.010 it no longer loads in PM. After deleting cookies and cache, I still only get empty GUI (as in, I see the left side menu but nothing in the main screen).
I wonder if they changed anything significant or it's a problem on my end. It loads just fine in Firefox.

This means they went the Chrome route.

You may be able to avoid this by using the grey framed theme?

Certainly something to tell the webmin dev! I use it myself as well so certainly not happy if this is something that is a problem across all themes.

I poked the Webmin people on GitHub and they state it's a theme issue, indeed. Authentic (that error-prone "modern" theme with pseudo-analog gauges) is the one that loads bundle.js and uses Sveltekit. the Grey Framed or VirtualMin themes don't, so if you configure webmin to use that, it should be fine. Not sure if there is a quick way to switch themes outside of using the GUI and if not, you'll have to use a different browser to swap themes and afterwards should be fine?

Of course the discussion there landed on "ES9 has been out for a number of years now, why can't we use it?" and "Isn't Firefox fast and secure enough?" to which I welcome anyone with opinions to chip in if they want (please remain civil and to the point if you do).

So are they going to fix the theme, or was it an intentional change?

Seems they are willing to work on a fix, and have something initial already out:

They've updated their development version of Authentic to be Pale Moon compatible again.
You can pull that version in by using

Code: Select all

webmin update-devel --product webmin --theme
Which will update Authentic.
