How to install Virtualmin on a Raspberry pi 4

You can install Virtualmin in Raspberry Pi with just a simple modification on to the install script.

I have my Raspberry Pi 4 installed with Pi OS Bookworm and it is based on Debian Linux 12 using the install script.

What you need to do is

1. wget
2. sudo nano
3. Find the text “get_distro”
4. Add in os_type=”debian” after get_distro

log_debug “Operating system name: $os_real”
log_debug “Operating system version: $os_version”
log_debug “Operating system type: $os_type”
log_debug “Operating system major: $os_major_version”

What this does is, it will force the script to recognize the host as a debian operating type.

Execute the script … It should install without any issues.
