Run levels 3 & 5 services


Hi All,
Just a quick question.Whenever I look to turn my unneeded services off I usually turn them off for both Run Levels 3 and 5 to take care of CLI and GUI environments.

My question is: Is it always that if a service is started by default on run level 3 ; its also started on run level 5?So for eg.I have to turn sendmail off on 3..I also notice its running on 5 so I have to turn it off there as well.

Is this true of Linux in general and if yes are there any exceptions where there's a service(which comes by default with Linux)which runs on run level 3 but not on 5 or viceversa.

Thnx
Arvind

you are free to run whatever services in whatever runlevels you like. Whilst convention has said that 3 is for a nomrmal boot, and 5 is for all that plus xdm, there's nothign to say you can't modify their uses as far as you ar concerned.
