Description alfred 2000-04-11 23:16:58 UTC
Linuxconf used to work fine after my initial install of RH6.1.
I recently upgraded to ; I don't know
if this action caused it to stop working or if it was something
else. I've tried several things, like reinstalling it (1.16r10)

   rpm -i --replacepkgs linuxconf-1.16r10-2.i386.rpm

It seems to reinstall properly, but it still crashes. I don't
know how to downgrade back to my older version to see if that

Here is a backtrace using gdb, maybe it will mean something to

Starting program: /bin/linuxconf

Try removing /etc/smb.conf . Mine had corrupted during a linuxconf crash a
trashed the file.

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-09-13 22:34:25 UTC
Try using the 6.2 linuxconf package; if the problem persists, please re-open.
