I recently installed Slackware 10.0
I am facing a few problems.
1) Whenever I give a command to shutdown the P.C. (init 0, poweroff, shutdown -h now)
Slack shuts down all processes and leaves me at a console saying "Power down" and the cursor blinking under it, but it does not switch off the P.C. and I have to do that manually.
How do I automate the process so that Slack completely shuts down the P.C. instead of me doing it manually all the time.
2) How do I start a service?
In particular what do I do if I want to start the sshd daemon. (I don't want it to be started at startup --for that I'll have to edit the rc.local file.-- I just want to start it when the P.C. is already booted up).
a slocate on sshd gives :
root@knapsacker:~# slocate sshd
Thanks in anticipation.
