Problem with linuxconf


Hi !

I use Red Hat Enterprise 4 and linuxconf 1.34r3-1. Works fine for me so far... But every time I do a reboot, I get the message, that there were changes in /etc/fstab.

"The root device has been changed to /dev/root"

Then kudzu is started, I get a message that the system isn't synchronized with the newest configuration.

Changing rights for /var/spool/mqueue ...
Changing rights for /usr/sbin/pppd ...

I have the choice to "Do nothing" or "Do it". Nevertheless I choose one or the other, I get this problem every time, the system starts.

When I uninstall linuxconf, everything is fine.

What Do I have to do ?

Quite obvious: uninstall Linuxconf and learn how to make changes manually. Linuxconf mucks with all sorts of settings behind your back, which isnt a good basis for a reliable system.

Thank you for your reply. I would like to just simply uninstall linuxconf. The problem is that I just need the tool "netconf" that's within "linuxconf". The user should have the ability to change network issues but he should NOT edit system files. So there is a menu where he can change network parameters like IP-adress or hostname. Is there an alternative to "netconf" ? With Red Hat - Standardtool "netconfig" I can't change the hostname...

Other plan is that "linuxconf" just doesn't automatically start when booting. But I don't know how to stop the daemon. There has to be a way to start "netconf" manually later.

Could build a simple menu for that.
