    rcd refuses to start

    I installed OES Linux with _no_ extra Novell stuff.

    I've installed rcd, rug, red-carpet but I cannot get the rcd daemon to start up.

    /etc/init.d/rcd restart

    Sep 23 11:21:14 cassini rcd[19764]: (This may mean that another rcd process is already running, or that

    There is no server listening on port 505, however. Turning off the firewall doesn't help.

    I have another server and rcd runs just fine. Uninstalling rug, rcd, red-carpet and reinstalling doesn't fix the problem.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, Brian

    Try 'fuser -v 505/tcp' to verify no processes are using 505. If there
    arenn't then try :
    strace -f rcd
    or
    strace -f -e trace=open rcd

    and see if either one gives you a clue as to why it is erroring out.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Somehow Openwbem was running on that port. I _vaguely_ remember trying openwbem but can't say that I uninstalled.

    Anyhoo....I killed the process and restarted rcd. Life is now very good!

    Thanks, Brian

    Excellent! We need an OES/Linux FAQ site for this stuff....

    I've seen those pages but it appears to be one article and not a
    categorized list to branch off of with articles like the SuSE Wiki (
    http://www.susewiki.org/ ).
