Did sysvconfig disappear in Ubuntu 9.10?

Did sysvconfig disappear in Ubuntu 9.10?

I just installed Ubuntu Server 9.10, and don't have sysvconfig, if I apt-get install sysvconfig, it tells me that sysvconfig has no installation candidate.

(From Debian) ROM; Sysvinit-utils, a required package, conflicts with it.

As an alternative, you might check out sysv-rc-conf:

Description: SysV init runlevel configuration tool for the terminal
sysv-rc-conf provides a terminal GUI for managing ""/etc/rc{runlevel}.d/""
symlinks. The interface comes in two different flavors, one that simply
allows turning services on or off and another that allows for more fine tuned
management of the symlinks. Unlike most runlevel config programs, you can
edit startup scripts for any runlevel, not just your current one.
