HTML mode: moving to PNG
- Starting with this release, Linuxconf is using the gd toolkit to
produce PNG instead of GIFs. GIFs were getting problematic
to say the least (licensing). I have upgrade the libgd package at
. Pick version 1.7.3 if you wish to recompile Linuxconf.
HTML mode: URL encoding
- I have included the patch to produce relative URL that should
please all browser and the apache proxy.
Module usermenu: privilege enhancement
- A user defined menu has a privilege allowing a normal user
to access the menu. The privilege scope can be expand to provide
super-user equivalence for every function cover by the menu.
A check box has been added to the definition dialog to enable this
new behavior. A help screen was written.
netadm module: debugging for the export protocol
- A check-box enable some debugging (sent on stderr) for the export
protocol. This protocol is used to publish configuration changes
to administration group members.
New linuxconf command line: --version
- The command "linuxconf --version" prints Linuxconf revision.
- I have completed the "on demand" archiving. If you visit the
dialog "Configure system profile", the first field (a check-box) is
finally implemented. The field has been renamed to "Archiving
mode". When enabled, archiving is done every time a configuration
file is modified (before it is modified in fact).
This should please people doing experimentation with Linuxconf
since all version of all configuration files are preserved. What is
missing now is a nice front-end to browse the archive.
Profile archiving: /etc/mail/mailconf
- Files in /etc/mail/mailconf (templates for sendmail.cf) are now
virtual user account creation command line
- It is now possible to create virtual email user accounts using the
command line. The password can't be set from the command line
yet. You can add and delete accounts using the following command
linuxconf --modulemain mailconf --addvuser domain user name
linuxconf --modulemain mailconf --delvuser domain user
