Description steveleach 2000-10-23 15:39:34 EDT
I have purchased/installed Red Hat Linux Server V7.0, no probelms noted on 

Custom Installation chosen - components wanted include Samba, NFS, FTP, 
Apache Web, Sendmail, in other words a Server, but with X-Windows and some 
development/utility stuff.

After install - wanted to add IMAP for POP etc, Binary CD chosen and 
GnomeRPM used - seems to install ok, but when use Linuxconf - Control 
Service Activity to configure for Automatic start, runlevel to start on, 
and Start/Stop or Restart - no changes take place. This all worked in V6.2.

I have downloaded all new patches on the Bugfix page to no effect. I have 
also noticed that some of the componenets selected during the install are 
also 'unconfigurable or uncontrollable using Linuxconf's - Control Service 
Activity (examples Rlogin etc). Interestingly, there is no Package 
information displayed in the section on the page for any of the 'problem' 

Is there a problem with Linuxconf in V7? Or am I missing Something?

Best Regards,

Linuxconf doesn't yet know how to configure services started by xinetd.  The
ntsysv tool can be used to toggle these.

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
