Mandriva: Updated xinetd package corrects initscript language bug
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake The initscript for xinetd incorrectly set the locale to en_US. If the localesn-en package is not installed on the system, some xinetd services may not work properly. This was first noted with the svnserve program from subversion.

 Problem Description:
 
 The initscript for xinetd incorrectly set the locale to en_US.  If the
 localesn-en package is not installed on the system, some xinetd
 services may not work properly.  This was first noted with the svnserve
 program from subversion.

 This has been fixed in the updated packages, which set the locale to a
 generic value.  Users not wishing to apply the update can work-around
 the problem by installing the locales-en package.
