    Replacing inetd with xinetd (Debian)

    Hello all,

    I want to replace inetd with xinetd on my Debian server. I already just ran "apt-get install xinetd" and converted my inetd.conf to xinetd.conf with a script provided but I'm unsure where to go now. Do inetd and xinetd work together (I don't think so)? Can I remove inetd completly and if so, how would I do that properly. I see both inetd and xinetd running in my processlist at the moment.
    If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated!

    Go through inetd and comment out all the security risks and use xinetd. It should be in your /etc partition.
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
