Hi Jon,
I am still trying to find out any changes in the firewall or the changes to
the programs you mentioned.  The one major change that did happen was an
upgrade from Debian Etch to Debian Lenny.  I did not see any infos on that
that could cause an issue but is there any thought that the CPAN modules you
have to be recompiled and installed?  Is that something that could cause
that kind of problem?  If it was just the error messages during the make
test I could live with that, but the concern for me is that I am having
problems installing a new catalog.  I sets up the catalog o.k. but when I
restart the IC it says that IC can not be stopped.  So I put the previously
installed and back-up version back in and the system works.  But I would
like to set up a new catalog and for the system to run as designed.  Any




Hi Kyle,

Did you check your error logs (catalog, IC and OS)? Did you check that the
"stop" uses the proper PID?

Telnet definitely would have nothing to do with this. You can safely forget
about that.

Having SELinux/AppArmor enabled would definitely cause issues if you didn't 
Configure it adequately. Try turning it off/disabled to see it all works OK
or not.

With safety off, firewall off, if it fails, check your logs and post the
errors on here.
