Problem with using Xinetd


I'm going through strange symptom with my linux.

When I type
Code:
service xinetd [start|restart|stop]
, there is no responses or messages at all. Even when I tried some meaningless argument, such as
Code:
service xinetd sdfsdfsdg
, it just doesn't work.

I checked that xinetd is installed by using the command
Code:
rpm -qv xinetd
. Also I do not see the error message "Unrecognized service" when I type the commands.

Here's what I see when I type the command.

Code:
root> service xinetd <any string>
root>
Somebody have any ideas?

Hi,

Could you tell us your distro?
You can try to run xinetd directly in debud mode and see if you get any output:
Code:
/usr/sbin/xinetd
Also you can take a look at the various logs (/var/log/syslog, /var/log/messages, maybe /var/log/xinetd.log) and see if you get something

Regards
