This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. Since this
bugzilla is in a component that is not approved for the current
release, it has been closed with resolution deferred. You may
reopen this bugzilla for consideration in the next release.
As RHEL-4.9 is last update for RHEL-4 and it is not suitable for new features
and should address only security, performance and critical issues, I'm moving
the bugzilla to RHEL-5. Package is not present in RHEL-6.

patch to fix init script like in fedora
This patch fixes the init script in the same way as it's done in Fedora.
There is no chance to fix this in RHEL-5 any more, since RHEL 5.10 is going to include only serious fixes. rarpd is not in RHEL-6, so closing as WONTFIX.
