stop/restart xinetd and httpd failing
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:15:38 EDT
Description of problem:
While the service is stopped (service xinetd stop). Restarting (service xinetd restart) will fail due to sub-command executing improperly. Below is the output error:
Boot splash control client
USAGE: plymouth [--help] [--debug] [--newroot=<string>] [--quit] [--ping] [--sysinit] [--show-splash] [--hide-splash] [--ask-for-password] [--update=<string>] [--wait] [subcommand [options]...]
Same problem with httpd:
service httpd stop
service httpd restart
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. service xinetd stop
2. service xinetd restart
I do not see this problem at all with latest rawhide updates (2008-08-13) running on i386. initsripts-8.80-1.i386
Is this a fresh rawhide install?
What else is happening on your system prior to running
service xinetd stop
service xinetd restart
from the command line?
Somehow the "yum update" I performed through repo build I pulled out a couple of days ago created an unstable state on my system. I re-installed 10-Alpha again and did NOT see the problem as I stated above. Maybe it is just some other unstable and/or transient packages affecting xinetd,httpd init scripts.
Anyway, I will closed this for now.
