Does anyone know why RedHat decided to remove one of the nicest tools around out of RedHat 7.3 :cry:

It owned and now its gone.

Because editing configuration files using vi in /etc is a lot better ;)

You serious they removed it??? Wow.... thats interesting (I am using 7.2 until I finish my exams).

I usually manually configure things via conf files anyway, but sometimes Linuxconf comes in rather handy.

But I must say linuxconf is nice.. It is the best console cfg tool(s) around.

Yeah, it's strange... Especially considering the majority of RH users would not be using a GUI.

You can still get linuxconf for Red Hat, and it's still be updated. To grab the binary or source RPM, go to this page.
