Thumbs up TFTP server On Fedora 7

Hi All,

I want to have tftp server running on my system.By googling , i came to know about the rpm for that.But after installing i am getting this error.

[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -ivh tftp-server-0.42-6.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
xinetd is needed by tftp-server-0.42-6.i386

Please help me in sorting this issue.

Ask suggested, download and install xinetd as it's required by tftp-server.

Why don't you just use the one that is in the repo?

yum install tftp-server
