Yeah, Linuxconf is a bit scary. I haven't been able to run it in a while
without it trying to persuade me to restart some services every time, even
though I hadn't gone near them -- not a good sign. Sounds like it has its
own idea of what my system should be running, instead of Red Hat's.
BTW I say use wvdial, it's neat and it now comes with RedHat 6.1. Just run
"wvdialconf", it'll detect your modem, then throw in username, password,
and phone number into /etc/wvdial.conf . Maybe not as plug'n'play as kppp
or linuxconf, but the lack of having to faff around with a chat script is
nice. With any luck they'll throw in a fancy GTK config tool, or at least
BBTW -- anyone seen the current issue of Buy and Sell (the one with the
big ad for buyandsell.net on the front page)? Check the computers for
sale section, and look under "U" for User Friendly -- some evangelical
Linux fan must have too much spare change on their hands ;)
Regarding the ASR article in the Sunday Times -- clearly Danny O'B wrote
"luser" in the correct places, and some subeditor spellchecked it into
"loser". Wouldn'tcha just hate that,
