What to do if inetd.conf file becomes currupt?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Now I can't log on to any IRC servers because Ident is not enabled, but I can't use the program IdentCtl 1.2 because it says that damned thing is currupt. What the hell do I do??

    here's mine: link. you can download that to your desktop, then pop into terminal, and type 'sudo mv /private/etc/inetd.conf /private/etc/inetd.conf.MYOLD; sudo mv ~/Desktop/inetd.conf /private/etc/inetd.conf'. that will move your old one out the way, and move the one you grab from my webserver into place. after doing that you'll have to do 'sudo kill -9 `/var/run/inetd.pid`;', which will restart the inetd program, and make it use the new file. note: sudo will probably ask for your password.

    you may have to add some items to the inetd.conf file. i'm not sure just how irc uses it, but the version i sent you works for me (then again, i dont use irc).

    edit: now that i think about it, i'm pretty sure that NetInfo is supposed to take care of inetd. inetd.conf might be there just as a placeholder.
