Services in runlevel don't start automatically


Hi,
I have this problem.

My server runs in runlevel 2 by default (id:2:initdefault: in /etc/inittab)
I want to start some services in this runlevel, so I created symbolic links to /etc/init.d/ like this:


lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2007-11-26 16:27 S20ssh -> ../init.d/ssh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2007-11-26 16:53 S23ntp -> ../init.d/ntp
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 2007-11-26 16:50 S20postfix ->../init.d/postfix
.
.
.

The problem is, that none of the services is started automatically after reboot. Is there any way how to make them start?

I am running debian 2.6.18-5-686 (Debian 2.6.18.dfsg.1-13etch4) (dannf@debian.org) (gcc version 4.1.2 20061115 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-21)

Thanks for your answers.

Tom

On Debian you should be able to start services on boot using update-rc.d e.g.
Code:
#update-rc.d postfix defaults

this is what I get:
update-rc.d ssh defaults
System startup links for /etc/init.d/ssh already exist.

Symbolic links are already created but the services won't start

Give this a shot,
Code:
#update-rc.d -f ssh remove
#update-rc.d ssh defaults
If that does not work, then I am not sure what else to suggest.
