Description Michael Redinger 2001-07-17 15:41:42 EDT
doing a "everyting" install, sgi_fam is enabled (in xinetd). It 
definitely should be disabled.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-07-17 18:35:52 EDT
Unrelated, but...

the description comment in the xinetd file for sgi_fam needs a line continuation
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-07-18 16:36:30 EDT
This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.
Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2001-08-10 10:57:19 EDT
fam is also installed and enabled for a GNOME or KDE workstation
installation. It is used by nautilus and konqueror. It
also binds only to loopback.

I would consider the original report NOTABUG.

The xinetd thing looks like a two minute fix-and-rebuild. 
(I assume this affects how it shows up in ntsysv or something.)

It seems to make things _slower_ on my machine.
