    Default Has this been asked?

    What was Suseconfig. What did it do, and why is it gone?

    Just a casual question. I'm curious.

    If you know, a short basic explanation is all I need. I don't want a long detailed answer and/or links to technical pages that will take a lot of reading.

    Hi
    It's a script and still in use on SLE, from my SLED install man page;
    Code:
    SuSEconfig  configures  the  system according to the variables that are set in the various "/etc/sysconfig/" files.  It uses
    the subsystem specific scripts in "/sbin/conf.d/" to configure the  various  subsystems.   For  example  the  variables  in
    "/etc/sysconfig/postfix"  are  evaluated  by the script "/sbin/conf.d/SuSEconfig.postfix".  SuSEconfig acts as a backend for
    YaST2 and activates the configuration changes made by YaST2.
    Reason it's gone here -
