Description of problem:
xinetd-2.3.4-0.3 RPM fails to install properly or start on Redhat 7.2 .
rpm reports "error: execution of %postun scriptlet from xinetd-2.3.4-0.1
failed, exit status 1".
When a start is attempted, xinetd reports "xinetd: /lib/i686/libc.so.6:
version `GCC_3.0' not found (required by xinetd)", despite no mention of
this in the rpm prerequisites.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and start xinetd-2.3.4-0.3 on a Redhat 7.2 install.
Actual Results: Service does not start, returning the error.
Expected Results: The service should have started.
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.
OK, which version of rpm resolves this?
If the new version of rpm is needed to install this package, shouldn't it be
added to the prereq list?
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.
