[K12OSN] apt-get update anomaly



Mornin,

The latest apt-get update|upgrade this morning presented the following xinetd related comments in /var/log/messages. I don't think it is a problem - but it is a production system so I figured I'd ask.

Jun 12 09:49:34 localhost xinetd[736]: Exiting...
Jun 12 09:49:34 localhost xinetd: xinetd shutdown succeeded
Jun 12 09:49:34 localhost xinetd[25925]: attribute server expects 1 values and 2 values were specified [line=12]
Jun 12 09:49:34 localhost xinetd[25925]: Must specify a server in talk
Jun 12 09:49:35 localhost xinetd[25925]: xinetd Version 2.3.11 started with libwrap loadavg options compiled in.
Jun 12 09:49:35 localhost xinetd[25925]: Started working: 11 available services
Jun 12 09:49:37 localhost xinetd: xinetd startup succeeded


hmmm, talk config files look the same, except for ;

       flags                   = IPv4
       [...]
       server                  = /usr/sbin/in.talkd -d

flags is missing in one, and debug is set in the other.

I HUPed xinetd and all this popped out...

[root localhost xinetd.d]#


I portscanned the system from the root console, all /looks/ normal.


any comments ?


TIA,
Steve
