Howdy -- thanks for letting us know!

I've asked Joe for some information on what might cause this issue.

Oops... Crap. I thought I'd added the fix for that to our new build system, but I guess now.

The problem is that RPM now uses a new compression format in packages that is not supported by older RPM versions. I'll re-roll the package for CentOS 5. Thanks for the heads up. I should be able to get it fixed by tomorrow.

Hi there,

Any news about this?

Oh... and another question, will the Java File Manager still be available? Because its a real pain when trying to work with and edit files with Filemin file manager, IF it can do the things you normally do with the excellent Java FIle Manager.

It should be fixed by 5.0-2. But, I don't have a centos 5 system handy for testing. Give it a try and let me know if it continues to fail.

As for Java File Manager, it will be deprecated eventually. Java on the web is just a bad idea these days. But, it will be a few months before it is removed from Webmin, to give us to time to add any functionality to Filemin that folks need from the old file manager. So, let us know what is missing, so that by the time the Java File Manager goes away, Filemin will do the job.

Hi Joe,

The update worked just fine now, Thank You!

I will do a list of things I cant do and things that takes much more time and work in Filemin. I do most of my work and updates for all our customers online with the Java File Manager, I most of the time have many open file text-editor "pop-ups" running the same time, comparing, copying, and so on... very easy and fast to work with, in Filemin you have to start over every time you want to open or check another file. There are so many things needs to be added and changed in Filemin for it to even come close to the excellent Java File Manager in any way.
