To find which all services depend on a particular service... a method ..plz comment
Inorder to find which all service depend on a given service ,, i did the following
To find which all services depend on the service syslogd.
I first located the binaries of each of the services in the /etc/rc.d/init.d directory
and then ran the following command
$ strings <full path to binary> | grep syslog
If the command came up with a result which had syslog or vsyslog in it..
I assumed it depends on service syslogd
Any comments on this method
