Description Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2005-06-22 11:35:29 UTC
Description of problem:

"service arpwatch" fails.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Additional info:

does it in /etc/sysconfig/arpwatch . Avoiding quoting information with the -s
option makes it work, looking at "bash -x /etc/init.d/arpwatch start" shows
