Description wstearns 2001-01-11 00:26:33 UTC
If /etc/sysconfig/network is missing, the sysvinit script whines about "no
such file or directory" when network is sourced.
	Also, the test for "if [ ${NETWORKING} = "no" ] fails out because
NETWORKING has no value; the error is: "/etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap: [: =:
unary operator expected.

	Possible solution: replace:

. /etc/sysconfig/network

	with

if [ -f /etc/sysconfig/network ]
then
	. /etc/sysconfig/network
else
	exit 1
fi

	Also, replace:

if [ ${NETWORKING} = "no" ]

	with

if [ "${NETWORKING}" = "no" ]

	Cheers.

Fixed in portmap-4.0-31 (the first one should never occur as this file is always
created by the installer, but it doesn't hurt to make even more sure)

Oops... wrong bung. Anyway, this has been added to xinetd (the inetd replacement)
