Description of Problem:
Unable to start tftp server.
I've installed all the bug fixes with up2date, and I have upgraded to the
latest versions of tftp from rawhide.
$ rpm -qa | grep tftp
This seemed to work for a while, but now when I try to start the server using:
$ /usr/sbin/in.tftpd -s /tftpboot
It exits immediately and I find the following message in /var/log/messages:
Aug 13 11:49:41 radagast in.tftpd: recvfrom: Socket operation on
Hmmm. If I enable tftp through ntsysv, it comes up running. If I don't enable
it in ntsysv, then I can't get it running from the command line. Weird.
Well, it's running now, so my problem is solved.
OK, I'm closing this bug then with NOTABUG if thats ok with you. Reopen it if
you think it's necessary.
But yes, chkconfig tftp on and a service xinetd restart is the correct way of
Read ya, Phil
