Are you logged in as root? By default, linuxconf is executable only by root.

So is netcfg working now?

Maybe linuxconf is not installed.

try

locate linuxconf

or look in /sbin

[vnc@beta /vnc]$ ls /sbin/linuxconf
/sbin/linuxconf


Here is what happens if you are not root

[vnc@beta vnc]$ linuxconf
bash: linuxconf: command not found
[vnc@beta vnc]$ /sbin/linuxconf
bash: /sbin/linuxconf: Permission denied

This is what TrickyKid means.
He was serious.


[vnc@beta /vnc]$ /sbin/Linuxconf
bash: Linuxconf: command not found

You can also check with rpm -q linuxconf

supraj,

so you logged in as regular user eh... you never have stated if it works when logged in as root, or you never have said if you tried to locate it and if its even installed. How are we suppose to help you if you don't try what were telling you to do?
I never use Linuxconf so I got confused on whether it worked with a lowercase or uppercase cause I see it in my start menu's with a uppercase L.

So what is the deal supraj, you don't seem to be listening to us in helping you? You haven't answered any of the suggestions we have given besides my mistake.

linuxconf not installed by default

I had the same problem, newbie that I am. Turns out that

1. you must be logged on as root and
2. linuxconf is not installed by default in Red Hat Linux. In Red Hat 7.1 it is located on CD 2.
