...........or you could always move your chosen S symlinks from the relevant /etc/rc.d subdirectory ( /etc/rc.d/rc5.d for run-level 5 ) -
Simply create a new directory first which will hold the moved symlinks.
su to root in a shell - then
then (for example)
mv /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S20random /etc/stoped_services
On reboot your random number generator wont start up because there is nothing pointing to the actuall service in /etc/rc.d/init.d from /etc/rc.d/rc5.d because youve moved the symlink.
