Here's one suggestion: Remove the packages you installed that provide
services (files in /etc/init.d or /etc/xinetd.d) until you find which
one has caused the problem.  Then report it as a bug either in that
package or the system-config-services packages.

It seems that you've run into some bugs that are caused by poorly
packaged software in the distribution (based on your man page problem
yesterday).  This shouldn't happen, but installing nearly everything
isn't a configuration that gets a lot of testing.  If you do so, I
think you should be prepared to do a bit of debugging and filing of
