A script to replace line breaks in 'talk'
Authored by: larkost on Apr 12, '04 11:58:35AM

You might want to try enabling talk with xinetd rather than inetd. inetd has been depreciated in 10.3.

It's deprecated, you meant. :-)

To enable "talk", sudo service start talk. Not sure if this enables it the next time you boot too or not. In olden days you had to use chkconfig for that.

starting talk...

Could it be "service ntalk start"?

Tried all the others but kept getting error messages. This one starts a process. However, I still couldn't get talk to work at all.
