RedHat 8.0 - Where is linuxconf?


Please could someone tell me where linuxconf is or what I am supposed to use instead of this in RH8 (and how to get to it!)

Thanks

linuxconf is locked away in a box to neevr be reopened hopefully. it was always a dangerous and unreliable program, and is now no longer used by any distributions afaik.

i really couldn't tell you what redhat has now. from what i understand for 8.0 they wrote a bunch of (or renamed a bunch of) programs called redhat-config-something type the first half and press tab to see if the files are on your system and what they are actually called.

Linuxconf is on the Redhat 8.0 install disk you just have to select it to be installed. By default it is not selected to be installed. Check on the Install CDs and see if you can find it there. I know it is because I selected to install it during my installation last week.

Dear oh dear.

Just like I would never touch the evil borked distro Redhat 7.2, acid seems to thrive on it.

I've never had any trouble from linuxconf at all.

The alternative is GConf-editor, which comes with Gnome (but isn't as powerful as linuxconf)
