/etc/inetd.conf ?


I've seen reference to this file yet I don't find it at all in my hard drive install of SLAX 5.0.4.

It's not critical that file. It the configuration for inetd which is used to activate servers (like web or ftp) on demand. I assume Slax doesn't need it since it's not targeting a server market.

Thanks for the reply.

Services are running, either thru an 'on demand' /etc/rc.d/rc.filename start command

or

chmod +x of the service desired at startup.


Seems like inetd.conf is convenient as it handles multiple services in one file.
