Description of problem:
I have installed arpwatch on my FC4 system and used chkconfig to set arpwatch for starting automatically during the boot process.
While the system booting, I see a message like
Starting arpwatch: usage: arpwatch [-dN] [-f datafile] [-i interface] [-n net[/width]] [-r file] [-u username] [-e username] [-s username]
And, sure enough, there is no arpwatch daemon running.
If I try the command "service arpwatch start", I see the following:
Starting arpwatch: [FAILED]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install arpwatch RPM on FC4.
2. Try to start the arpwatch service.
Actual Results: One of the messages mentioned above along with the failure of the arpwatch daemon to start.
Expected Results: Starting arpwatch: [OK]
arpwatch -u pcap -e root -s 'root (Arpwatch)'
from the command line is successful.
