SuSEconfig is dead…

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/30

SuSEconfig has been dead for a while, but still indexed at quite a few of the official sites stressing the importance to use it.

It used to apply the configuration in /etc/sysconfig to the system.

The rationale for removal was simple:

Let’s remove all SuSEconfig scripts since only YaST calls SuSEconfig but other tools like rpm and zypper do not call it.

If scripts are needed, they need to be invoked as part of the postinstall.

Now most services either know to directly handle the configuration data there (and apply it during reload/restart/start of the service), or have a tool (like postfix now has /usr/sbin/config.postfix) to apply the settings.
