SUMMARY No Showrev After Patch Installation

     As is often the case, this problem was unrelated to my
original assumption. The problem running "showrev" did not
result from the 101945-50 patch installation but from changes
made in inetd.conf that happened at about the same time.
Re-enabling admind in inetd.conf as shown below fixed things.

     Thanks to Seth Rothenberg for his input.


Un-commenting-out the following in inetd.conf fixed things:

100087/10 tli rpc/udp wait root /usr/sbin/admind admind
