1.11r18 contains bug fixes to various modules which used to work on 1.10. Note that on Red Hat 5.1, all Linuxconf modules are shipped (installed) but not enabled. In 1.11R11, some were not working properly.
By default the HTML mode is now disabled. A check box located in the "networking/linuxconf access" menu allows you to enable the feature.
Originally, the default was to allow HTML access from the loopback and from the local network (network of the first adaptor). This has been changed. Beside being disabled by default, only the workstation itself may access the service. If you wish to access the HTML mode from another host or network, you must configure it in this dialog. The way it is configured has not changed (you enter network/netmask pairs).
There is still a bug in HTML mode when you create an account. You are getting a dialog mismatch error when you enter the password. We are working on it. The workaround for now is this:
Note that this problem is specific to the HTML mode. The other user interface should be reliable in this area now.
To configure the boot time default, check out the "boot mode" menu and then the "default boot mode" entry. A new check-box has been added to enable/disable the boot time menu. By default, it is off. The reason it is off by default is unrelated to security. Some people claims it is a fairly surprising feature, so the user should enable it himself. Once this feature gain widespread acceptance, we will turn it on by default, since it is solving so many show stoppers (such as "how do I configure my workstation to boot in graphic mode by default").
linuxconf --setmod modulename_or_path linuxconf --unsetmod modulename_or_path
The file /usr/lib/linuxconf/redhat/mailconf.daemons was wrong and prevented this module to work normally.
