Linuxconf fails to update changes runtime. After making changes I
have to reboot to get the changes. It is starting to feel like
windows ;-).

I have to admit that I only tried changeing the hostname. Maybe
the hostname can't be reset runtime ?

The system hostname is one of the few things that is only set at boot-time.
Most configuration changes made with Linuxconf take effect immediately.  If you
need to make this take effect immediately, run these commands at a bash prompt:
. /etc/sysconfig/network
hostname $HOSTNAME
and then use this command to verify that your hostname has been changed:

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore

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