Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16696
xinetd doesn't execv() correctly
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
Using the latest xinetd RPM, when trying to use a service that uses the
'nobody' user (e.g. finger), the service does not execute and gives you
xinetd: execv( /usr/sbin/in.fingerd ) failed: Permission denied
(errno = 13)
Huh? This doesn't happen on our systems (which admittedly are a bit fresher, but
I don't recall fixing anything like that...) Everybody can execute in.fingerd?
ok, whoops. reverting back to RedHat 7 beta xinetd RPM doesn't fix this.
However, on my other computer, running Pinstripe stock, these 'nobody' services
work fine.. This must be because of some other Rawhide package, but how do I
track it down?
finger-server? is nobody able to execute it? Anyway, this definitely works on
the current tree so I'll close the bug. Thanks for the report, though.
