I do have inetutils installed but I can't find inetd except in the
/lib/perl5/5.8.2/Net/demos/ directory. The relevant portion of cygcheck
Should I reinstall it? On a side note, I installed the KDE 3.1 packages
and got those running fine. I was using xinetd but it was too slow and I
really don't need the graphical interface. Also, the format of xinetd
didn't look like what I am used to using from my experiences with SuSE.
I am willing to learn a new format if I have to, but want to make sure I
am in the right place before I start.
Oh, and I probably haven't thanked you yet for all of the suggestions.
