Package name
xinetd

Advisory ID
MDKA-2006:044
Affected versions
2007.0 x86_64 , 2007.0 i586

Problem description

The initscript for xinetd incorrectly set the locale to en_US. If the
locales-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.
