How to see system services are enable or disable in ubuntu 11.04(Natty Narwhal)

what is chkconfig

Chkconfig is a utility to update and query runlevel information for system services. Chkconfig manipulates the numerous symbolic links in /etc/init.d/, to relieve system administrators of some of the drudgery of manually editing the symbolic links.

In Debian, there are several tools with similar functionality, but users coming from other Linux distributions will find the tools in this package more familiar.

Go to Terminal and open it and type the command “chkconfig' press enter.

john@john:~$ chkconfig

The program 'chkconfig' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:

sudo apt-get install chkconfig

“If chkconfig is not intall you will see the above massage”

to install “chkconfig”thpe this command “sudo apt-get install chkconfig”

john@john:~$ sudo apt-get install chkconfig
