Yep I'm gunna do another thread about which services to have running, but hopefully helping me will help many others as I've already turned off most services, and you guys can explain the ones I have left and why they should/shouldnt be running.
This setup results in GKrellm reporting 46 procs, 2 users and 54Megs ram used on Mandrake 9.1 with KDE 3.1.0. All are started on boot.
More that I though
Ok, now as I dont have the dialup modem used until I launch Kppp, and dont have any other network, I'm guessing I can kill off internet and network. IPTables is doing it's thing despite what MCC/DrakXServices says
I dont start the aRts soundserver when KDE does, so which sound service can be stopped?
I have nothing scheduled in DrakCronAt so can I halt atd and crond?
CUPS -> I rarely print and dunno if I'm actually using CUPS to.
Numlock, worth turning off? I think it's set to no change how it finds the numlock state anyway.
Rawdevices? I dont use Oracle or play Dvds
Xinetd? Could be vital, could be useless.
Thanks for any help, and I can type out MCC's little info pieces about each service if you want
