${LOCALBASE}/lib/webmin/setup.sh

${LOCALBASE}/etc/rc.d/webmin

/usr/local/lib/webmin/setup.sh but nothing happens

well when I added the package ...

#make install clean...

it did its thing and right before it 'cleans' , ends the installation, it gives you a few last insctruction ; like add mywebmin_enable to etc/hosts...the other two directions were...
to run ${LOCALBASE}/lib/webmin/setup.sh
and
to start webmin to run
${LOCALBASE}/etc/rc.d/webmin
which I did both but nothing happens...

actaully if anyone is having problems : I had to reinstall again...I rebooted and just got rid of "LOCALBASE" ; my files were on a different path than the ones stated by the webmin install comments at the end; so  #find / -name webmin  ... so I could see where they really were and then just write out the real path to the files /setup.sh and
.../rc.d/webmin start
