Description of problem:
I'm running with selinux turned off. When I start xinetd, I get this
in the logs:
Apr 24 08:19:55 wintermute xinetd: xinetd startup succeeded
Apr 24 08:19:55 wintermute xinetd: bind failed (Address already
in use (errno = 98)). service = rsync
Apr 24 08:19:55 wintermute xinetd: Service rsync failed to start
and is deactivated.
Apr 24 08:19:56 wintermute xinetd: xinetd Version 2.3.13 started
with libwrap loadavg options compiled in.
Apr 24 08:19:56 wintermute xinetd: Started working: 4 available
rsync is not already running. The rsync package hasn't changed since
April 7th and xinetd hasn't since March 1st so this may be kernel related.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable rsync
2. restart xinetd
Actual Results: xinetd complains that the rsync address is already is use
Expected Results: it starts normally
This has since gone away. I don't know if it was a kernel thing or
what but it doesn't happen with the 35x kernels.
