Linuxconf 1.4 (test release)
Linuxconf 1.4 is an intermediate release for testers including
different things but mostly the html interface (configure
your system straight with a web browser). To install linuxconf
so it operates this way, just write
in /etc/services (choose the port you wish)
linuxconf stream tcp wait root /bin/linuxconf linuxconf --http
and then do
linuxconf start on demand. From you web browser, open
and click, click ... Comments are welcome on this.
-IPX interface management/configuration. Huge but simple dialog.
-Some correction to pseudo-tty permission checking at boot time (Some
pseudo-tty work not checked).
-Permission and mode work not checked correctly for special devices
-fastab editing was not providing access to the two last field (dump
and fsck order). Now it does allows you to plug a number there in
-Email alias: Linuxconf was checking for duplicate case sensitivly. It
has to be case insensitive. It is now.
-One nice addition to mail configuration: Complex (user) routing.
It is now possible to solve this kind of problem directly with linuxconf
using a simple dialog.
-your machine is the mail server of the domain virtual.com
-You want to redirect all email for email@example.com to
Previously, linuxconf was only supporting special routing at the domain
level. Using this, it is now possible to redirect a complete domain to
a single user somewhere else.
-/etc/sendmail.cf is now optionnaly generated even if you change the
configuration. There is an option in the menu just for that.
-All commands used by linuxconf are now visible in a menu in the main
menu. You can interactivly change the path and the argument linuxconf
is using to call the command. No need to recompile or to play in
-Firewalling now work with the latest kernels. The user interface has
not changed though.
