A related question is how much could I muck up my system if I let my

that I couldn't later use apt-get remove to remove it, but other than
are there problems using Webmin itself to get individual modules or even

Comments appreciated - John
I would _highly_ recommend against allowing Webmin to upgrade itself
if you wish to use the Debian Webmin packages.
Recently, I allowed Webmin to update itself, believing that it'd allow
me to use a newer version of Webmin. The Webmin upgrade was
successful, but, a few weeks later, apt-get update upgraded the Webmin
package, breaking everything. Luckily, I had a complete backup of my
Webmin configuration files, so I purged Debian's packages, installed
Webmin from source, and was up and running again.
Thanks, Stephen - I was afraid that would be the answer. So where can I
monitor what's happening with the Webmin packages in Debian?
