KsysV : get rid of useless services?
Hi, I'd like to have my Linux boot a little faster than it does right now (it's got a horribly sluggish boot!!). I read that a goos way to do so was to remove useless services from the boot sequence. So I went and had a look at Ksysv, and here's the services it runs.
Most of the time the explanations on each service are useless. Do you have any information about them?
For example, I don"t use a printer, and I won't use one, so I thought I could remove the "cups" service. Is it safe?
Another example : I only use Kmail as my email client, and I don't use my computer as a server, so could I remove the "postfix" service?
Do you have any other idea of useless services, given the fact that I only use my computer for multimedia applications and desktop working (Open Office)?
Thanks a lot.
