Question Where gone 'linuxconf' in RH9


Hello linux gurus,

I usually edit the config files for changing configurations.
In RedHat 6.2 I found linuxconf, a nice interface in text mode [i.e. bash terminal] to change configuration and in RH7 also had that I heard. Recently I installed RH9 but but couldn't discover and invoke that linuxconf yet :-?.
Though I am comfortable in editing with vi but my many followers... newbies from windowed-world here are not.
I saw during start up message showing linuxconf = [ok]. Any clue where is that one buried!
Bulgy X-Windows desktops are wonderful but Text mode is always champion.

Thanks
Deb

i'm at work on an xp machine, but you could always try:

updatedb
locate linuxconf

or:

find / -name linuxconf

hope this helps.

Edit: more than likely it's /sbin/linuxconf which would be in root's PATH but not yours.

linuxconf isn't installed by default anymore cause its insecure, buggy and just plain sucks. If you really want a GUI interface to admin your box, try www.webmin.com
