linuxconf


Im learning linux from a book that seems out of date. It refers to opening linuxconf in either a terminal or Xwindow. Ive tried entering "linuxconf" in a terminal window, only to be told that no such command exists. Ive also looked for it in KDE but there is no option or mention of the program anywhere.

Im using Mandriva Free 2007.

Can anyone help???

TIA

Quick Google (the verb) suggests it is outdated--what book are you reading?
