ksysv GUI alternative?


I have been using ksysv for a long time now and it has always bothered me that the GUI does not resize and seems to be written for a 800 x 600 screen. Does anybody know a better tool that shows all system services and runlevels without the silly scrolling around?

Otherwise, I guess I have to write one myself, managing the runlevels is really really easy, should not be hard then.

I don't know a gui, but on Debian I use sysv-rc-conf from the cli. It's curses based and a simple space bar to mark unmark runlevels services should start.
