Description multics 2000-02-08 21:03:09 UTC
I was installing redhat 6.0 on a machine for dedicated name service so only
selected the name service and network workstation software.  rpm generated
an inetd.conf file with ftp in it, but no in.ftpd was installed.  ftp was

xfs was installed even though no X11 was requested as was alot of stuff
in /usr/X11R6.

A general suggestion is some type of help if you are seleting individual
packages.  many of hte names don't mean anything to me and I've been a
unix admin (part time) for about 20 years.  Its hard o tell what really is
in some of the packages just from the package name.

The default inetd.conf has entries for services that may not
be installed; it's normal. inetd will close connections to those

xfs is installed, because some of the fonts that ghostcript uses
need xfs to be used under X. X libs are installed because they're
required for ghostscript.
