How to get into LinuxConf in Gnome


Hello,

I recently installed Red Hat 9, and I'm having trouble locating LinuxConf in Gnome. I am wanting to make Shell Accounts, do I now need to do it in another program?

Thanks

Matthew Collins

you can use this to find the rpm you need; just enter linuxconf
in the search box and press enter. you can use almost any .i386.rpm
result listed - the .src.rpm are source rpms. download the rpm of your
choice, double-click it from within your red hat desktop and it will be
installed. then you can probably use the command linuxconf to start
linuxconf.

good luck.

linuxconf isn't included any longer as its unstable and buggy. There are better ways to configure and maintain your machine. Something like webmin works better if you want to use a GUI. If not, I'd suggest just learning to manually edit and configure by hand, you learn more about your system that way and have more control.

Thanks, very much, I was trying to make an account which I could give and denie access to certon programs.

Can I do this in Webmin?

And how do I find Webmin? (e.g. open it, or do I need to download it?)

Thanks

I don't think you need Webmin or Linux conf to do this.
In RH 8.0, you can create users under System Settings -> Users and Groups

btw, on trickykid's tip, i downloaded and installed Webmin (and Usermin).
Seems like a better tool.
Download at http://www.webmin.com/download.html
