Description R P Herrold 2001-01-07 14:25:12 EST
See the Testers-list discussion and 16431, 23171, and 23172

Add a file   /etc/sysconfig/identd and variable,

OPTIONS=" -d "

also useful:  -C (file) and so on -- see man identd

and source in in the initscipts, adding it to the start branch.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-01-11 06:34:35 EST
Wrong component, identd has little to nothing to do with inetd, aside from
looking similar. ;) 
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-01-11 16:12:42 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Comment 3 R P Herrold 2001-01-11 21:02:12 EST
As with 16431, 23171, and 23172, Please, please remind users in the
print docos and perhaps with commented out examples in the config file,
to place their values within double-quotes as a defensive matter.

( OPTIONS=" -d "   rather than  OPTIONS=-d )
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2001-01-18 10:10:33 EST
Dunno why this is a MUST FIX while the other daemons aren't. Either we do all
the daemons,
or none of them, doing pidentd only seems dumb.

Adding dependency on klogd and deferring.
Comment 5 R P Herrold 2001-04-10 23:45:05 EDT
Re-open for consideration of proposed RFE in RH 7.2
Comment 6 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-04-11 17:58:39 EDT
I added that January 18th - it's included in pidentd-3.0.12-4, and a couple of
earlier ones.
