The goal was to remove Xconfigurator entirely, but it just hasn't happened
yet.  redhat-config-xfree86 is the new tool.  I will consider doing this
though, as it is a good idea in case we do end up shipping it afterall. It
would be quite confusing to leave 3.3.6 support in Xconfigurator.

Thanks for the reminder.

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-07-19 07:09:14 UTC
Xconfigurator is now removed from rawhide.  Everyone is encouraged to
use redhat-config-xfree86 and report bugs against it as encountered.
