apache: supporting namevirtualhost
- A new field was added: Domain ip address. You set the IP there
and then define IP less virtual host sharing this IP.
Boot time menu revisited
- The boot time menu (askrunlevel) was reworked to be less intrusive.
Instead of a popup, you get a small paragraph like this
Hit any key to enter configuration mode
Hit to resume the boot process
The boot sequence will resume in 14 seconds
So it does not break the previous output on the screen. If you
press any other key than enter, then you have the usual menu.
mailconf: queue management
- You can now manage the mail queue (/var/spool/mqueue), view
and delete entries from Linuxconf. Comments welcome.
mailconf: sendmail.cf generation strategy
- The strategy to generate this file was changed. Until now, Linuxconf
was proposing the update the sendmail.cf file if it was not matching
the proposed configuration. this was handy for those relying only
on Linuxconf for sendmail configuration, but not so fun for the other:
They had no option other than not using mailconf at all.
The new strategy is slightly changed: If sendmail.cf was generated
by Linuxconf, then the previous strategy apply. If it was not (or was
modified, even just a byte), then Linuxconf won't take about it. The
only way to get a new sendmail.cf from Linuxconf will be interactive
when changing configuration in mailconf itself.
mailconf: supports /etc/mail/sendmail.cw
- Until now, Linuxconf was ignoring that file (old mistake). It now
does and will silently migrate old setting to that file. If you edit
you sendmail basic configuration and you have set domain aliases
there, Linuxconf will remove the settings from /etc/conf.linuxconf
and write /etc/mail/sendmail.cw (and will regenerate a sendmail.cf
that uses it).
Main package smaller
- the various module were not stripped in the RPMs. This explain why
1.16r1.1 is a little smaller than the previous one.
raidconf: A new module to manage software raid
- This is just a start. I want to help promote software raid on kernel 2.2
as it is pretty exciting. Anyone has a wish list on the topic, or spare hours
to work with me on this, you are welcome!
treemenu: smaller tree
- When the treemenu is computed, its opens a little smaller, limiting
the opened node to the third level. I still have work to do so it can
remember its state after a Linuxconf update though.
I believe it is more usable this way.
