I googled for you:
Also I have installed dhcpd from source ie. not from rpm.. so i think i have to something manualy to make dhcpd appear in services.
i start dhpcd by just typing dhcpd at console..
If you just want to get the freakin' app started at boot time, here is your approach. But note, as I said: it's not the most thorough, I still need to learn runlevels
Find the path of dhcpd. (find / | grep -i "dhcpd"
) I'll use /sbin/dhcpd
as an example.
Now add this to the end of your /etc/rc.local
# wuck: launch dhcpd at boot time
# echo 'see_above_code
' >> /etc/rc.local
(or just use your favorite text editor and cut 'n paste ..)
I always add a comment to lines I add, because my rc.local
file is already stuffed with code from other people. That way I know what I added. Be sure to backup the file. You _can_ leave 'wuck', but you might as well change it
For future reference: as you might have seen, /etc/rc.local
is executed every time you boot, no matter what runlevel your system boots.
NOTE: I don't think dhcpd will appear in the services list.
