Problems starting Xinetd?


I have a problem with starting Xinetd 2.3.12. When I run "xinetd -d" as root I get this:

03/12/10@18:23:52: ERROR: 2071 {find_next_entry} missing service keyword [file=/etc/xinetd.conf] [line=6]
03/12/10@18:23:52: ERROR: 2071 {handle_includedir} Unable to read included direc [file=/etc/xinetd.conf] [line=15]
The /etc/xinetd.d/ directory exists and I got two services in it.

Why does this happen?

I use Mandrake Linux 9.1 but I've compiled Xinetd from source.

It says there are errors in /etc/xinetd.conf. Could you please paste the file here?
