1. Linuxconf, when runned with gnome frontend randomly crashes with RedHat 6.1 stock installation. Because of unknown reason it does not work when started from gdb, so I can not print stack trace. To see the problem try, for example, do a various things with PPP configuration linuxconf will crash (sooner or later). Same thing with many other modules. 2. When I add users by useradd everything is OK. But for users I added from linuxconf --text when such user login (or when doing su -l username) bash prints some shell errors. Something like [: Too many arguments The ~/.bashrc and the other files in home directories are identical for users added by useradd and linuxconf. 3. When changing a password from linuxconf when user entered a password which is a word from a dictionary linuxconf prints an error message (this is OK), but then regardless this error it asks to confirm the password. This is slightly confusing. If there were an error - do not ask to confirm the password. Just ask enter a new one.

In addition to item 1. linuxconf DOES NOT crash when started as linuxconf --text It crashes only with gnome frontend.

Tested using Linuxconf-1.16r10 which will be released as errata when testing is completed. I would suggest upgrading when it is available. 1. Linuxconf seems to run fine under gdb. I have not seen any crashes in testing. 2. I have added users using the gtk front end and with linuxconf --text and all seem to be able to login with no errors. 3. Linuxconf merely returns what useradd returns. These are configurable settings to useradd. ------- Email Received From Vladislav Malyshkin <firstname.lastname@example.org> 12/04/99 12:26 -------

I tried to configure my ethernet card in order to connect to a cable modem. I used the gnome System Menus > System > LinuxConf to do this. Linuxconf let me enter all the parameters, then "crashed due to a fatal error" when I asked to activate the changes. This is pretty frustrating!

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore.
