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 9098
telnet: connect to address Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

/var/log/messages has:

Jun 11 20:35:19 station1 xinetd[29290]: No such internal service:
services/stream - DISABLING

On RHEL3/FC1 outputs the following:

# chkconfig services on
# telnet 9098

Comment 1 Jay Fenlason 2004-06-17 16:48:18 EDT
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.
