service commands


Im not really sure what file drives the services but sometimes I try to:
service <servicename> start
it works for some and not for others, giving me the error Cannot find <servicename> service.

any help or suggestions you could give is greatly appreciated.

If you're using Mandrake (like any other RPM-based distro) you can find service scripts in /etc/rc.d/init.d. As root you can generally do this: ./SCRIPTNAME start | stop | restart

edit?

I'm trying to edit my NVIDIA config file.

which I can do from inside K-writer. But when I try to save it. I'm told that access is denied.

How do gain control of this and edit this file.

Is there a terminal ' edit ' command I can use?

I used rm to delete it, but it said permission denied.

If I'm logged in a su root, I thought I could do anything I wanted to any file I choose.

I'm in Mandrake 10
