What package contains tcpd?


I have Slackware 12.2 on a webserver and I need to install TCPD, but I don't know what package it's in.

Does anyone know? I've tried searching online but that hasn't worked out too well.

Just so you know, next time if you want to find what package(s) contain a 'string', you could issue this command:

grep -r string /var/log/packages/

OR better (in case you know exactly the command is tcpd):

grep -r "/tcpd$" /var/log/packages/

The MANIFEST file on the mirrors and installation media also have this information.

Oh, I forgot. The method I posted above is only usable if you have that package installed. So in this case it's useless, my bad.

An alternate to what dugan pointed out is that use a package finder tool, in which the following is a good choice:
http://slak.homelinux.org/index.php
(Use official repo, and issue 'tcpd' in the Filename box)

Excellent, thanks!

I started with a Slackware 12.0 virtual private server which was very VERY barebones. Just the absolute minimum as far as configuration goes, just enough to get it running. It didn't even have WGET installed.

Once I got slackpkg installed I was able to get alot of the extra packages needed installed to start compiling and upgrading to 12.2. I've also been able to get NGINX, MySQL, PHP, PHPMYADMIN as well as setup VSFTPD on it so it's almost a competent webserver now.

Every now and then there is something else I need to install or find and this will help me later.
