debian start up scripts?
I am new to debian Sarge. I am trying to make sense of how debian/linux starts up, and how to control what starts.

Is the start up controlled by scripts exclusively?

What are the various scripts involved in the start up?

Where are they located?

What is the best way to modify them?

Thanks, Peter

I'm not to experienced on debian, but if you talking 'bout system services startup,
check de man pages on update-rc .d, usually lives at /usr/sbin.

All general service (like httpd) start-up scripts are found in /etc/init.d

For more detailed info about the boot process just do "man boot". It's actually very interesting to read. Have fun :)

You can install rcconf to controll which scripts you want started upon boot. It doesn't allow you to pick specific runlevels though. I think it saves the config settings depending on which runlevel you are at. Try it out.

Thanks, for all the suggestions. I am trying to gain an understanding of how debian/linux starts up. Specifically I am trying to find the appropriate spot to run tpconfig.
