Gentoo: start / stop services


Hi there!

To see the status of my services i just do
#rc-status -a

That's ok ...
But if i want to add a service, lets say foo to a runlevel; who can i do this??

And also if i want to start foo just this time and the stop it when i no longer need it how can i do that??

Thanks in advance!

rc-update add <service> <runlevel> example:

Code:
rc-update add cups default
That will add cups to the default runlevel.

That help?

There seems to be a lot of things in Gentoo that are so cool but seldom known. I'm with you on that one. I didn't know that one either. That is way better than doing /etc/init.d/<service> status for each individual one too. That is especially true when you have at least 70 like on mine. That could take a while.

Learn something new everyday, I usually forget a couple too.

Later
