How to configure xinetd to start gnatsd

If your gnatsd will be started by xinetd (the "extended internet daemon"), create a file /etc/xinetd.d/support with the following lines (see Installing the daemon (Keeping Track)):


service support {         disable = no         socket_type = stream         protocol = tcp         wait = no         user = gnats         server = /usr/local/libexec/gnats/gnatsd server_args = gnatsd }

or add theses lines to your xinetd.conf file, whatever is appropriate. The equal signs seem to need spaces around them with some versions of xinetd.

You need to add

     support		1529/tcp		# GNATS

to /etc/services (it may be necessary to use tabulator characters to separate the fields), and to tell xinetd to reread its configuration (kill -HUP pid-of-xinetd).
