View Full Version : inet.d vs xinetd, FC4

1st May 2006, 02:35 AM
I'm a noob. The more I read, the more I realize that I don't know much.

so, I read enough references to xinetd that I finally read up on it, and decided that I ought to be usng it...

I found a /etc/xinetd but it's a folder, not a .conf file like I was expecting to find. Do I need to disable inet.d before I run xinetd and where's the .conf file in FC4? Is there a tutorial somewhere that I'm missing?

I hope your using YUM to install all your software. Read the info at this link about zine and yum.
I think this will work for you. Good luck.

The whole idea behind xinetd is to save system resources... unless you're using old hardware, then think twice if you really want to change all your services over... you know what they say about "if it ain't broke."
Unless you have a compelling reason, there's no problem using the SysV scripts that many services use by default.

ok,read some more and realized that I had confused init.d with inet.d, and and inet.d led me to xinetd. I installed xinetd but will now remove it because I finally understand what PilotJLR meant. Don't need it.
