Additional info:

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2002-11-24 20:51:16 UTC
The current description reads:

| dbskkd-cdb is the one of the implementations of skkserv.
| You must enable xinetd to use this service.

Ok, I see there are missing backslashes in the description in
/etc/xinet.d/dbskkd-cdb.  Improving the text a little, does:

# description: dbskkd-cdb is a skkserv implementation, \
#	       a Japanese dictionary server for the Simple Kana to \
#              Kanji conversion program.

read better?

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2002-11-25 16:02:13 UTC
Yes that should work.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2002-12-18 19:02:39 UTC
