Description Dan Anderson 2001-11-06 22:11:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76C-CCK-MCD Netscape [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.8 sun4u)

Description of problem:
File /etc/xinetd.d/discard-udp contains multiple syntax errors
that prevents the service from starting.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
As root, type
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart


Actual Results:  The following message in /var/log/messages (and service
discard is not enabled):

Nov  6 12:05:54 dan xinetd-ipv6[970]: Service disard-dgram missing
attribute port

AND no output from this:
$ netstat -a |grep discard

Expected Results:  No message in /var/log/messages about service discard
(or "disard" sic).
And service discard being open:
$ netstat -a |grep discard
tcp        0      0 *:discard               *:*                    
udp        0      0 *:discard

This bug is similar to bug 38669 I filed for xinetd for RedHat 7.1 for the
echo service.

What does "rpm -qf /etc/xinetd.d/discard-udp" return?

Comment 2 Dan Anderson 2001-11-06 22:30:18 UTC
Ooops -- sorry, my blunder.  You may close the bug:

$ rpm -qf /etc/xinetd.d/discard-udp
file /etc/xinetd.d/discard-udp is not owned by any package
