FC4 equivalent of YaST


Does anyone know what FC4's equivalent of YaST is? What command would I type in to start it on the terminal?

If you are talking about upgrading and installing packages you should try running yum.

for the commands for this program it is:

yum --help

but basically (from what I have learned) to upgrade / install a package you type

yum install package name

As far as I know you need to know the exact package name, but I also believe yum gets all the package dependencies lined up for you and installed during the time of your original package install request.

I would also suggest heading over to rpm.livna.org and follow the instructions there to add their database for installs when using yum.

How this helps and what you were looking for

Actually, I was looking more for a Control Panel like setting where I can see what like network settings and such.

Your previous post says"looking for network settings" if that is the case try ifconfig.

If I may ask what is it you are exactly trying to do? Can you please be a little more specific?

Actually, I'm looking for a "Control Panel" like configuration screen where I can see various system settings such as hostname, network settings, currently installed packages. If you have SuSE, type yast into a command line terminal where X is not running and you will see what I mean.

Not sure if we are talking about the same thing. I run a window manager (KDE) and you are running at runlevel 3. Yet when I do a google search for YAST and look at screenshots, they are shown running in a window manager.

From what I can tell (in KDE and in a window manager environment) kcontrol is the menu / program manager with TONS of settings on KDE. If you eventually found out your answer, please post here for others to learn including me.

thankx...

So I guess the answer to your question is "system-config-network-cmd". Do "system-config-network-cmd --help" for instructions.

There is no unified equivalent to YaST in FC4.

As has been pointed out above, there are scripts that address specific types of reconfiguration needs. The absence of a unified control panel is an often stated criticism of the RedHat/Fedora series.

find and install yum and yumex. Yumex is what you want. I will look at the various fedora packages, and provide you with an upgrade list. You may choose to accept or skip.

I have been using yumex for 5 mo, and am entirely satisfied
