how to remove the bigd daemon from all run levels


i am having issues getting the right syntax to remove the bigd daemon from all my run levels. in my search for the answer I came across chkconfig I think I need it in my syntax but im not sure. and if it is needed i am running centos inside of a vmware virtual machine. also for any one who knows a lot about the bigd daemon if you could explain to me what the bigd daemon is and what it does in linux I would very much appreciate it I am to new to linux and i dont really know much about it.

Hi,

chkconfig has a man page. You can read it with the command
Code:
man chkconfig
According to the man page, you should be able to disable the daemon (if it is being managed with chkconfig) with the command:
Code:
chkconfig bigd off
As for what bigd actually is, I don't know. I suggest reading the /etc/init.d/bigd script to see what is actually being run, and then perhaps see if there is a man page for it.

Evo2.
