Description of problem:
The very useful ability to maintain multiple "profiles" (network
settings, etc.) for (eg.) home, office, etc. which was part of
linuxconf in previous redhat releases has apparently not been
broken out as a separate executable when linuxconf itself was
dropped in redhat 7.3. Is there any chance of someone creating
a "manage profiles" sysadmin tool in 7.3 to preserve that
functionality now that linuxconf has gone the way of the Dodo?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Read RH 7.3 release notes
The functionality isn't gone, its just poorly documented.
redhat-config-network (aka, neat) can handle profiles.
Just execute it as: redhat-config-network -p
