What does 'grep kotalkd /etc/xinetd.d' say?

Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2003-01-28 06:14:21 UTC
I noticed the same thing on a fresh phoebe2 everything install.

The problem is /etc/xinetd.d/kotalk:

[root@winsucks xinetd.d]# grep kotalkd /etc/xinetd.d/*
/etc/xinetd.d/kotalk:   server          = /usr/bin/kotalkd
[root@winsucks xinetd.d]# 

In RHL 8.0, ktalkd supplied /usr/bin/kotalkd. The equivalent in beta4 is
/usr/bin/ktalkd, which is supplied by kdenetwork, and there's already a separate
/etc/xinetd.d/ktalk config file which enables that. AFAICT, deleting
/etc/xinetd.d/kotalk is now fine

Comment 3 David White 2003-01-28 23:42:40 UTC
What he said...  (kotalk: server          = /usr/bin/kotalkd)

Comment 4 Ngo Than 2003-01-29 14:37:18 UTC
kotalkd is replaced from ktalkd. /etc/xinetd.d/kotalk should be removed.
