10.4: Force use of launchd for upgraded installs
Authored by: mistertim on May 15, '05 06:39:40PM

How do you know which one is being used to launch services? Is there any way of telling whether launchd or xinetd is being used?

10.4: Force use of launchd for upgraded installs
Authored by: geohar on May 16, '05 04:13:58AM
Simplest way is to do

cp /etc/xinetd.d/ssh ~/xinetd_ssh_old

<go to sharing prefs, toggle ssh's on/off setting>

diff /etc/xinetd.d/ssh ~/xinetd_ssh_old

<check for a difference>

rm ~/xinetd_ssh_old
of course, if /etc/xinetd.d/ is empty, launchd is used. If you see differences, then xinetd is being used (as will be the case if /etc/xinetd.d/ isn't empty).
