more questions on update-inetd and the like
Hi all, I am about ready w/ my oidentd package. However I have two questions
which I think are linked.
oidentd needs command line options, so I can not use /etc/alternatives. If I
use update-inetd to remove the identd from netbase and insert oidentd is there
some way to avoid doing this on future installs?
Right now there is only identd in Debian (that I am aware of). However there
are plenty of identd servers which others may like to package. So it seems
like having a virtual identd package for everyone to depend/conflict/suggest is
prolly a good idea.
Once I get this cleared up a release of oidentd 0.5 will be on its way.
BTW I like this author. I asked him about a possible feature and to notify him
of his program being packaged and he sent back a thank you e-mail and released
a new version with the desired feature (which I had offered to code).
