Description Mads Kiilerich 1999-11-10 05:26:58 EST
all other daemons in init.d has a d in their name.

Also inetd is _known_ as inetd, while "inet" sounds like
something like the whole internet.

Please rename it.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-01-04 12:03:59 EST
While the lack of a d may seem inconsistent with other scripts, there
are other unix systems (e.g. solaris and probably most SVR4 clones) that have
traditionally named this script "inet". I also don't believe the name change is
worth the pain the change would inflict on Red Hat users.
