There still is a real bug in the xinetd source rpm (xinetd- of

Hmm, I tryed command line on RH 6.2 where WWW access via inetd works and 
linuxconf did not produxce any output too. So this seems that the bug may be 
inside xinetd as is written above. Sorry.
Comment 7 Milan Kerslager 2001-04-10 16:37:21 EDT
