Simple Questions...Hopfully Simple Answers.


I was wondering about xinetd and chkconfig.

My first series of questions: How many major distros (Slack, RedHat, ManDrake, SuSE, etc) use xinetd as apposed to inetd? Is it related to the kernel version or is it specifc to a distro? I know Slack running kernel 2.4 uses inetd, but does a Slack running 2.6 run xinetd?

Second series: If a system is running xinetd would it also have the "chkconfig" command available? Or is that just a RedHat/Fedora thing?


Thanks in advance.

chkconfig and xinetd are both available available on SuSE 9.1 (running kernel 2.6.4). I don't think that they are distribution dependent.

A default install of Slack 10 only uses the 2.4 kernel. The 2.6 kernel can either be installed from an included slack-pkg, or compiled from source and installed.

That being said, I've installed the slack-pkg 2.6 kernel on my system (which was a default install), and I'm only seeing inetd... no xinetd here.
