This dialog was changed. There is no "preview" option again. The preview screen has been folded in the little menu. So you see immediately the task to perform. From there, you can either "quit" from Linuxconf without doing anything, "do it" and "back to Linuxconf".
The task list is now enhanced, showing some comment in bold explaining why a given task need to be perform. It will tell you that this configuration file has changed, so we must restart a given service. Or it will tell you that the service is not running, so we have to start it. And so on.
This feature "Linuxconf explains itself" was requested on the list not long ago. I would appreciate comments about the implementation.
Linuxconf uses the revision date of that file (generally /boot/map) compared with the revision date of /etc/lilo.conf and all other files referenced by lilo.conf, such as kernel images and initial ram disks.
As part of the "Linuxconf explains itself" feature, Linuxconf reports which file is newer than the map file.
A help list provides a list of known commands. You can enter whatever you want as a command. the string %h is replaced by the host name of the group member.
Value (o) default (o) none __________
