Linuxconf 1.2 (official release)
-Some cleanup to cleanly compil in gcc 2.7.2. It nows compile fine
with 2.6.2 and 2.7.2 (2.7.0 also I guess).
-askrunlevel now does some sanity check at boot time. The fixperm
mecanism has now a way to specify that a check should be done only
at boot time.
This includes some permission checking and validation of /etc/fstab.
If something is wrong, a message will be sent to the user, with
a timemout of 15 seconds.
-Some permissions checking are done on pseudo-tty. They are normally
set back by telnetd and other but may stay improperly set after a crash.

are now located in /usr/sbin.
-Some preliminary work have been done for the HTML mode. Not operationnal
-Some cleanups of the user interface in preparation to make it
a DLL. It could be used for other things than linuxconf.

firewall using a telnet and keep the connection active. You must be careful

from the outside.
It is now possible to specify network and interface using the interface
name (eth0) instead of IP numbers. It is more convenient. The kernel still
works with IP number instead of interface. Linuxconf is simply doing
-Many changes in the ppp dialout dialogs. More pppd features. Be warn that
it is targetting pppd 2.2.0 and not the current production one. One tester

have been added in the help to describe how to setup a permanent link
with it and /etc/inittab.
-Some paths were changes from /var/adm/... to /var/log/... according to
-When Linuxconf prompt for the root password, it will gives you 3 tries.
