Hi experts

I recently took over a gentoo box. It is suppose to have ftp pppoe and dhcp installed on it already. I can see pppoe and dhcp related files on it already, so I am sure these two installed. But the ftp I am stumped. I found it under here:

/etc/init.d/in.tftpd start
* Starting tftpd ...
but when I try to start it it fails and I can see, from /var/log/messages
in.tftpd[27795]: no -s directory

has anyone seens this before?

Looks like it was never set up. Take a look at the service configuration file, "/etc/conf.d/in.tftpd". You can see in there how the -s parameter is set.

A couple of Cliff Notes for you as well:
  • To see what package owns a file, use equery. For instance,
    Code:
    equery belongs /etc/init.d/in.tftpd
  • The emerge command is the main interface to Portage, Gentoo's package manager. Just one example,
    Code:
    emerge -s tftp
    which finds all tftp related packages in the package repository.
Hope this helps.

- John
