Go to snapshot.debian.net and fish out the right library versions
suse/rh uses, install them, install the same packages (inetd/xinetd)
suse/rh uses and voila. Compatibility.

If you don't do that you can also claim that SuSe isn't SuSe
compatible as you can have exactly the same version/package skews
within one distro.
