Try logging into KDE as root with the same user name and password and see if it will let you in... If yes
then unemerge webmin and re-emerge webmin. I'd also check to see if you need to add users to a group
such as a webmin group or something like that. Its been a while since I used webmin.

after re-inatallation, Webmin had the same problem, but...
Solved, because it accepted "root" word, as both login and password, and now, runs and the password can be changed. Thanks.

I think it is a good idea to make backups of configuration files in the home directory. The configuration tool should have some options for sysctl like

http://planet.larrythecow.org/
see "On software installation and activities" for some ideas that might be good with the configuration tool.

It's been taking a backseat to life for a month or so now. The good news is we've already put in too much effort to call it quits. :)

We've got a very good framework for the whole thing going and of course the entire concept of how it should work was thought out a long while ago, but it still has a lot of work to be done.

As Stupot mentioned, we are a little short on time for the past month. Hopefully it will get better after the holidays.

If you want see what we have so far. You can always checkout the SVN trunk at sourceforge; https://sourceforge.net/projects/sabayoncontrol/).
Or browse it and download a tarball: http://sabayoncontrol.svn.sourceforge.n ... rol/trunk/

In the state it currently is it is buildable and runnable, just not all menu's and buttons are working yet.
To build it, you need cmake.
If you have the trunk folder downloaded and extracted to a folder called: '/home/somebody/sabayoncontrol/trunk/' you can follow the steps below.
1. Go to that folder

Code: Select all

cd /home/somebody/sabayoncontrol/trunk/
and it should contain 2 folders 'doc' and 'src'
2. Create a new build folder

Code: Select all

mkdir build
3. Cd into it

Code: Select all

cd build
4. Execute cmake

Code: Select all

cmake ../src/
5. Build it using make

Code: Select all

make
6. Install it using make

Code: Select all

make install
The default installation prefix is '/usr/local' if you want to change it you can use the command 'cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/my/prefix ../src/'
For example you could create a install folder under your trunk folder

Code: Select all

mkdir /home/somebody/sabayoncontrol/trunk/install
.
Then you sould replace step 4 with the following

Code: Select all

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/home/somebody/sabayoncontrol/trunk/install/ ../src/
Maybe I should just create a readme file... :roll:

In GCC 4.3 the C++ header dependencies have been cleaned up, apperently. I didn't know about this and so there are some missing includes. If you use GCC 4.2 it will build correctly. We will try to fix it as soon as possible...

Thanks for trying out Sabayon Control Center :D

I've just fixed compile... didn't have much time lately.. I really, really hope I'll have more time soon.. now I have at least my development machine back running :-)

Concluding: what we've coded should work now :D -- at least those things intended to work yet :D
