Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3315
xfs not listening
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
The version in xfs in XFree86-126.96.36.199-49 does not appear to
listen for incoming connections.
Copying xfs from a similar system running
XFree86-188.8.131.52-22 and running it allows telnet connections
to be made to port 7100 and a LISTEN entry shows up in
However, if xfs from -49 is used then although an strace
reveals it to be waiting at a select, netstat -a makes no
mention of a service listening on 7100 and telnet 127.0.0.1
7100 yields connnection refused. The configuration file used
is the same in both cases.
