Description of problem:
On FC2, the internal Xinetd "services" service no longer works:
[root@station1 root]# chkconfig services on
[root@station1 root]# /etc/init.d/xinetd restart
Stopping xinetd: [ OK ]
Starting xinetd: [ OK ]
[root@station1 root]# telnet 127.0.0.1 9098
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
Jun 11 20:35:19 station1 xinetd: No such internal service:
services/stream - DISABLING
On RHEL3/FC1 outputs the following:
# chkconfig services on
# telnet 127.0.0.1 9098
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).

Connection closed by foreign host.
Looks like upstream removed it from 2.3.12 without mentioning it in
the changelog, and I never noticed (There's only ~5300 lines of
diffs between 2.3.12 and 2.3.13). You might want to ask them why
(www.xinetd.org). In the mean time I should remove it from the
Fedora spec file.
