Description of problem:
the documentation on kerberos in the RH 7.3 manual references the gkadmin
program, yet it is not included in the gnome-kerberos package for RH 7.3. I
installed the RH 6.2 version on my RH 6.2 system and the program seemed
useful... and the changelog states that it was removed because the author
doesn't use it... Will there be a replacement GUI kerberos admin program
Still the same problem with Red Hat 8.0!
gkadmin is supposed to be there, but it isn't.
$ cat /usr/share/doc/gnome-kerberos-0.3.1/README
This is gnome-kerberos, for lack of a better name. It includes:
* krb5 A tool for managing Kerberos tickets.
* gkadmin A tool for managing Kerberos realms.
$ rpm -ql gnome-kerberos
