Runlevel 5 default services


Hopefully a simple question:

If I turn off services during a session and save, does the runlevel go back to a service status default on reboot?

For example, if the initial status of 'cron' is on and I turn it off and save. Will 'cron' be on when I reboot my system?

If not, could someone list the default service status for runlevel 5.

Do a ls -l in /etc/init.d/tc5.d/ or use the tool ntsysv to check which services that starts up on boot (It has an S in the filename).

Hope it helped a bit

Thanks jacs, but I guess what I need to know, is if my 'save' modified the rc5.d file. I guess I could do a 'ls -l' and look at the time stamp.

How are you turning the services off?
With "chkconfig servicename off" maybe? If you use chkconfig to do it, then yes, the services will not be started when your computer next starts.
If you wish to just stop a service until your computer starts or you start the service, type "service servicename stop/start/restart/status"

If you turn off an service it doesn't change the running level but if you do like pilot1 says the link from rc5.d to rc.d is deleted. So rc.d holds the files and rc0.d -> rc6.d holds only links to rc.d.

Hope it helped you a bit in your conquest to master linux

I used the services application in the menu system to turn off several services. When I finished turning off the services, I had the option to save the changes, which I did.

I looked last night, and my rc5.d had a newer date than the rest of the rc_.d files.

Rather than try to guess which services are on by default, I will probably re-install RH9. This is mostly due to printer problems that I cannot figure out.

I re-installed RH9.0 and everything is running 'normal' now. I did write down the initial services that were turned on when I booted up for the first time. I suggest everyone document this before shutting down services.
