Question Turning OFF servers and such?!?!?! =/


Hello eveyone and thanks VERY much for helping or simply reading this.

I have heard there is a way to turn off services/servers etc... not really sure. Let me explain some, I have been spending some time trying to learn my FedoraCore1 and did a full complete install. I did this because I was unsure how to install programs at a later date and I also wanted stuff that I could play with and poke around in to see what they were all about.

So now that I have all these things running I read that it was possible to shut some of these down with OUT uninstalling them from the OS. Is this possible and are there any things I should know before attempting it... after my dozen or so installs I am fully sure my installation understanding is very well rooted into me now..

Thanks a BUNCH!!!

Sincerely,

Kevin in Alaska

Hi.

There's a program called 'Services' in your Gnome/KDE menu. That lets you switch off and on the installed servers, and lets you configure which servers to run on which run-levels.

If you want to do this from the command line, there's a program called chkconfig which does much the same as Services.

Hi again.

Yeah, do /sbin/chkconfig from bash (you'll have to be root to do this).

See the 'man' page for more info (man chkconfig). Post back if there's anything you need to know.
