Description Dick Porter 2000-01-07 10:04:19 UTC
Upgrading linuxconf adds itself to /etc/inetd.conf, even though I'd
disabled the linuxconf service by commenting it out.

Before upgrade:
# End of inetd.conf

#linuxconf stream tcp wait root /bin/linuxconf linuxconf --http
#swat      stream  tcp     nowait.400      root /usr/sbin/swat swat

After upgrade:
# End of inetd.conf

#linuxconf stream tcp wait root /bin/linuxconf linuxconf --http
#swat      stream  tcp     nowait.400      root /usr/sbin/swat swat

linuxconf stream tcp wait root /bin/linuxconf linuxconf --http

Please verify that this is fixed in linuxconf-1.16r10-5, which should be
appearing in the next Raw Hide.
