Removing Startup Scripts


I am running a Fedora Core 6 machine and I would like to stop mysql from running upon startup.

I can see the mysql executable in the /etc/init.d directory.

Is it as simple as removing it from this directory?

rm /etc/init.d/mysql

You can remove the link in the /etc/rc5.d/ directory, so if you want to restore mysql at startup you have to re-create the only the link. Better to use the System -> Administration -> Services utility and uncheck the little square before the mysql entry in the menu on the left.
