heimdal-kdc should depend on some inetd

Bug #123782 reported by Jamie Strandboge on 2007-07-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
heimdal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: heimdal-kdc

heimdal-kdc on Feisty should either Depends on openbsd-inetd (or other inetd), or a note should be given to the user stating that the default configuration requires it. Installing heimdal-kdc on Feisty server (which doesn't install an inetd by default) results in a broken configuration, since it is by default configured to run via inetd.

A fresh install of Feisty did not come with inetd. Checking netbase reveals:

It depends on update-inetd, but not another inetd. It also does not Provide inetd, or give the binary for it:
dpkg -L netbase

based on your comment, this sounds more like a problem with netbase. Maybe it should move there?
