Hi
Im running Red hat9.

The author of the book Im learning from uses Red hat 7.3 and in the book there is a chapter about Xconfigurator.By typing Xconfigurator and pressing enter the program should start,but it doesn't.

So is there Xconfigurator program in Red hat9?

Gone. The the XFree was not compatible with it. They replaced it with
redhat-config-xfree86
It disappeared in Redhat 8.0. I lot of things changed in 8.0. Below is a list that replaces a lot in 8.0/9.0

redhat-cdinstall-helper
redhat-config-rootpassword
redhat-config-bind
redhat-config-securitylevel
redhat-config-date
redhat-config-services
redhat-config-httpd
redhat-config-soundcard
redhat-config-keyboard
redhat-config-time
redhat-config-language
redhat-config-users
redhat-config-mouse
redhat-config-xfree86
redhat-config-network
redhat-control-network
redhat-config-network-cmd
redhat-install-packages
redhat-config-network-druid
redhat-logviewer
redhat-config-nfs
redhat-switchmail
redhat-config-packages
redhat-switchmail-nox
redhat-config-printer
redhat-switch-printer
redhat-config-printer-gui
redhat-switch-printer-nox
redhat-config-printer-tui
redhat-update-gnome-font-install

In RedHat 9.0, you can use RedHat's XFree86 configuration GUI.
At the command line, type:
Code:
redhat-config-xfree86
As for the DHCP client, dhcpcd was replaced with dhclient

You can find documentation on the Internet.
Use Google Linux ( http://www.google.com/linux )

And at the command line, type:
Code:
man dhclient
man XFree86

Im a bit confused here.Xfree86 is a X server and xfree86 is a program that can configure Xfree86's configuration file?Or are they one and the same thing?

I could find tutorials on Xfree86 server,but not on xfree86 configuration tool(if they indeed different entities)

bye

You have all the information at your fingertips on the redhast 9.0 documentation CD. Beginner Guide, day to day guide, etc. It is all in there.

You posted that you are running rhat 9.0. Is it the boxed set or the download version? I would download the documentation ISO and have it handy.

XFree86 is a program for displaying graphics on your screen

redhat-config-xfree86

is the program you run to configure X.

You can view or download the redhat manuals from:
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/
