Controlling which process start automatically at startup
I am using BOSS Linux(bosslinux.in), its an Indian Linux Distribution based on Debian.
I see a lot of programs that i dont use being started at boot time, stuff like bluetooth, stuff for printing(i dont use a printer). I was wondering if I could turn not have these start @ bootup, I'll just start them up after bootup if I need them.
For instance i have apache2 running by default each time i bootup my PC, there must be a way to have not come up by default.
To draw an analogy from windows what i am trying to do is something like using Spybot or msconfig or any other program to control which programs come up at startup.
Srry if this sounds 'n00b'ish but it would be gr8 if someone could list the programs that absolutely must be running for me to be able to use the system? I run a Gnome desktop, do programming(C/C++ - college), play mp3s, browse the web.
Thanks & God Bless
