Description of problem:
After updating xinetd to xinetd-2.3.0-1.71 (up2date) my imap service does 
not work anymore. In the /var/log/message I see the following message: Jul 
10 19:42:55 cali xinetd[4622]: execv(  ) failed: No such file or directory 
(errno = 2). I can nog get my mail by using imap.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to read my mail gives a error
2. try to connect telnet port 143 gives a error


Actual Results:  nothing
in the /var/log/message i see: xinetd[4622]: execv(  ) failed: No such 
file or directory (errno = 2). 

Expected Results:  I can read my mail. (connect to imapd via port 143)

How does your /etc/xinetd.d/imap look? And does the server specified in that
file work?

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-07-13 21:56:32 UTC
(FTR, it works here)

Comment 3 Robert Verhagen 2001-07-16 18:30:34 UTC
My /etc/xinetd.d/imap looks like this:

# default: off
# description: The IMAP service allows remote users to access their mail using \
#              an IMAP client such as Mutt, Pine, fetchmail, or Netscape \
#              Communicator.
service imap
        disable = no
        socket_type             = stream
        wait                    = no
        user                    = root
        server                  = /usr/sbin/imapd
        log_on_success          += DURATION USERID
        log_on_failure          += USERID

i have tried restarting the xinetd server but it still doesn't work.
