Synopsis:          Updated xinetd package is available for Red Hat Linux 7
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2000:090-02
Issue date:        2000-10-19
Updated on:        2000-10-19

1. Topic:

xinetd as shipped with Red Hat Linux 7 does not handle the linuxconf web interface correctly. Internal services (echo, daytime, time, and chargen) have been added for easier configuration. In addition, an xinetd-specific way of doing access control has been fixed.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - i386

3. Problem description:

xinetd as shipped with Red Hat Linux 7 does not handle the linuxconf web interface correctly. Internal services (echo, daytime, time, and chargen) have been added for easier configuration with chkconfig or ntsysv. In addition, an xinetd-specific way of doing access control (only_from) has been fixed.

4. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

18686 - /etc/hosts causes denial of localhost-only services
18901 - xinetd Time service broken
18221 - linuxconf-web does not work

6. RPMs required:

Red Hat Linux 7.0:

i386:
ftp://updates.redhat.com/7.0/i386/xinetd-2.1.8.9pre11-1.i386.rpm

sources:
ftp://updates.redhat.com/7.0/SRPMS/xinetd-2.1.8.9pre11-1.src.rpm

7. Verification:
