Description of problem:
Anaconda did not install the PUMP package on my system, but did install the netconfig package. This netconfig package has absolutely
zero documentation, and, as a result, one cannot even begin to work with it. In fact, the netconfig package only includes one file - the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man netconfig
Actual Results: No manual entry for netconfig
Expected Results: Some kind of excuse for documentation regarding a core system utility that is completely new to the system
none. Not much to go on, here.
netconfig is really obsolete and exists only for certain other components that
still depend on it.
You can still use it, but redhat-config-network is the preferred interface and
is more robust.
