setting up my first server and ran into a problem while installing webmin.

I am following this tutorial to help me out (see 8:51): link

I do the following:

wget http://wwww.webmin.com/download/rpm/webmin-current.rpm

rpm -U webmin-current.rpm

on the second line i get

error: failed dependencies: 
      perl(Encode::Detect) is needed by webmin-1.840-1.noarch

Use yum or dnf to resolve dependencies instead of using rpm directly. If you do the following it will automatically install the perl RPM you need:

sudo dnf install webmin-current.rpm

Or if you really want to install via rpm directly, this will install the rpm you need:

sudo dnf install 'perl(Encode::Detect)'
