Description compwiz 2000-08-21 21:24:13 UTC
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
this message:

xinetd[3571]: execv( /usr/sbin/in.fingerd ) failed: Permission denied
(errno = 13)

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-21 21:30:01 UTC
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?

Comment 2 compwiz 2000-08-21 21:33:48 UTC
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?

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-08-21 21:40:37 UTC
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.
