Description Chris Newman 2000-10-05 21:21:25 EDT
I just got my new Redhat 7.0 from redhat.com today.  I went I tryed to 
start up my POP3 Daemon (IMAP).  It refused to start it up, or to make it 
automatically start up after I rebooted the server.  This is a error that 
needs to be corrected in the linuconf program.  The error message 
said "directory not found" and the daemon would not start.  I've tried it 
to other daemons (samba, amanda, etc...) but with no success!

As far as I can tell, Linuxconf works for most things, but not daemons that run 
inside of xinetd.

It seems possible to turn on the daemon by editing the relevant file 
in /etc/xinetd.d/ , commenting out the "disable = yes" line.
Comment 2 Chris Newman 2000-10-11 20:01:56 EDT
I got it working, thanks.  But there should just be xinetd section for all the 
daemons, since linuxconf is "suppose" to be a tool for configuring linux.  Just 
an idea.
