Description David G. Richardson 2000-10-19 20:57:02 UTC
After running linuxconf in gnome as root, setting an NIS domain and NIS 
server, and activating the changes, linuxconf propoerly 
edits /etc/yp.conf, but does not cause ypbind to be started when entering 
any run level.  You still have to do a 'chkconfig --level 345 ypbind on' 
to bind to an NIS domain in any of the multi-user run levels.

I also didn't see a way to edit/set features controlled 
by /etc/nsswitch.conf, or /etc/hosts, /etc/passwd, /etc/group.  I'm not 
sure if that's a bug report or a feature request... :)

The back-end controls what the gnome-linuxconf front-end does, so I'm
reassigning this to the linuxconf component.  The /usr/sbin/authconfig tool
available from /usr/sbin/setup in RHL 7 includes this functionality as well.

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore

Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
