I don't know why FEDORA has to actively attavk my LINUXCONF but it
really pisses me off when I upgrade and find my linuxconf disabled.
Linuxconf is something you should be including in your product. If you
don't want to that's fine but - LEAVE MY SETUP ALONE and quit
OVERWRITING my xinetd setup!!!!!!
Red Hat and Fedora has not supported linuxconf for several years.
linuxconf was deprecated around RH 6.1 and removed entirely somewhere
Whenever possible we try to avoid instances where configurations are
automatically changed or broken by operating system upgrades, however
we cannot guarantee that it will be a smooth transition for all
configurations. It is especially problematic when such configurations
are created/maintained by unsupported 3rd party tools. For this
reason we regretfully disagree that this is our responsibility.
When upgrading your operating system it is a general best practice to
make backups, minimally of critical pieces like /etc. If you lacked
these backups, it would be equally difficult for you to restore your
server after a severe failure.
