10.4: Force use of launchd for upgraded installs
Authored by: johnts on May 16, '05 12:19:32PM

I just tried this. When I entered the command, the xinetd daemon did go away, but when I went to try and FTP into my system, i got an error. I turned off and back on FTP (and remote login) and was able to log in.

However. xinetd is running again. Entering the launchctl command now returns:

No such process

and yet ps -ax| grep xin shows:

474 ?? Ss 0:00.03 /usr/sbin/xinetd -pidfile /var/run/xinetd.pid

The .plist for xinetd does show the Disabled key is in there.

Hm. Maybe I just misunderstood. When I stop the FTP or remote login service, xinetd does go away.

I guess xinetd is needed for those services, it's just not running all the time to control other services.
