Description R P Herrold 2001-04-02 02:21:51 EDT
Per discussion on the Beta-tester's list some time ago, add a file:


 and source it in the xinetd initscript, to allow, eg, 

 OPTIONS=" -d " 

 which is passed to the start) option thus:

     daemon /usr/sbin/xinetd  $OPTIONS


 Also requires documentation addon in the print docs ...    

 In the instant example, this allows debugging the XINETD process.  I have
been tracking down a wrapepred service problem, and this gave me the detail
I needed.

 ... The use of an option avoids tampering with the initscript itselfm
preserving the rpm -V xinetd validity.

OK, this might be useful - not for adding "-d" (if you're debugging, you can
certainly change the initscript), but for things like "-limit" and "-loop".
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-04-04 19:01:16 EDT
Added that to xinetd-
