no “setup” command – CentOS

I usually use “setup” to do the firewall setup for permissive or not and setting of SELINUX, etc….

But on a minimal install you don’t have access to setup command, which is my favorite

[root@tel ~]# setup
-bash: setup: command not found

So how to install it in minimal install ?

yum –y install setuptool
yum –y install system-config-network*
yum -y install system-config-firewall*
yum –y install system-config-securitylevel-tui
yum –y install system-config-keyboard

(thanks JoVeN for spell mistake)

For system services utility install ntsysv (as Perico suggested in the user comments)

yum -y install ntsysv


That’s it….!! Enjoy

    Thanks. But please change ‘yum –y install system-config-keyborad’ to ‘yum –y install system-config-keyboard’. ^^
