Simply means you don't have the proper libraries. New detection has since been
added to rpm to handle this, AFAIR. Not an xinetd bug in any case.
Comment 2 Darren Gamble 2002-01-02 17:33:26 EST
OK, which version of rpm resolves this?
Comment 3 Darren Gamble 2002-01-04 10:30:17 EST
If the new version of rpm is needed to install this package, shouldn't it be 
added to the prereq list?
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-01-06 07:39:39 EST
No, it's just rebuilding so it gets the new dependencies. xinetd-2.3.4-0.4 (the
2002-01-04 snapshot) is now available.
