redhat-config-* tools


Ok I give up. Everything I read to access these tools says to open a terminal window ( as root helps), and type redhat-config-whatever you want (that's available). All I get is a bash config command not found. What am I missing. Did I miss something on my install. I'm running FC3 with Gnome. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe the fact that its system-config-<whatever> with FC3 might help

... and to find that out you could have use slocate.
first update the database: (as root) updatedb
then look for what you need using parts of the pattern:
slocate config-<something>
if that gives you too many answer either pipe to more (slocate config-<something> | more)
or use grep to narrow down the search (slocate config-<something> | grep <something else>

You can also just run them from the GNOME or KDE menu. Redhat/Fedora config tools now all start with system-* instead of redhat-*.

Thanks,,I knew it consisted of 2 parts. 1) It was an easy answer 2) As is with the typical Linux issues I've run into, the documentation leaves a lot to be desired for a newbie. Much appreciated to those supplying the positive input! Enough said.
