    I think svscanboot is a service of daemontools which for some reason you have used in place of xinetd. You must be running qmail as the mta I assume.

    This error is not something to disregard, you lkely have services that are not runnng that should be as a result. You need to provide more detail though.

    Is this error after you installed daemontools?

    try this:In boot.inittab, /command/svscanboot is changed to /usr/sbin/svscanboot.

    does it look right?

    NOBODY reads my email
    then who would want to anyway
