I have a file that I want xinetd to use, but I'm not sure where to put it. Which directory should I put it in?

It's in the form of:

Code:
service ircd
{
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        wait            = no
        user            = bitlbee
        server          = /opt/local/sbin/bitlbee
        port            = 6668
        disable         = no
        bind            = localhost
}

You could put it in the directory where you've installed xinetd, or the libwrap dir. wich is mostly /usr/local/src

You could also try /usr/libexec

Hope this helps

There is no src directory. I don't know where I installed xinetd to, I think my MacBook just came with it by default.

Can't you perform a search then, in spotlight?

I did, and there are no directories for xinetd. I just found out in 10.5 xinetd is removed, but I'm not 100% sure on it. But pretty sure.

I'm supposed to use launchd but I have no idea how to use it and I don't want to learn; I just want bitlbee to work. I also don't know how to change my xinetd file into a launchd file; there seems to be some coding involved which I'm not learning just for this.
