Both system-config-network and system-config-bind are in Fedora 15. I can sort of get why they would deprecate system-config-network in favor of NetworkManager (barely), but how are we to manage the DNS server? It is NOT trivial to create and manage DNS records with a text editor. For me Webmin is a little too bloated to install, just to manage bind. Is it time to for me (or the community) to create these useful tools? ---- personally, I use Webmin to manage DNS, DHCP & LDAP Users & Groups Yes, it is bloated considering I really only use 3 modules but it handles them well and it's easy enough to install. I suppose you could download the SRPM of system-config-bind from CentOS-5 and rebuild it and make yourself happy which sounds a whole lot easier than re-inventing the wheel but knock yourself out.
