Tuning Linux...


Hey all

Where/how can I find out what is being loaded when Linux boots up?

For instance, I see that pcmcia services are being loaded, but I have no
pcmcia devices so I don' t want it to load. From what I read so far, some
things are compiled into the kernel and some loaded as modules at boot
time. What file defines what is loaded at boot?

thx, cheers

Thanks! hmmmmm. So it looks like scripts placed into this folder get exec'd at boot time.
Not really a config file to speak of, is that correct. Move the rc.pcmcia to a backup folder
and rebooted, didn't see pcmcia loading, imagine that.

Wow! The script files look almost like C. Have to investigate this more.

cheers

u could also type :

chmod -x /etc/rc.d/filename

this will keep scripts from running at start time

Thanks heema, I'm not up to speed on chmod and what all I can do with it.

I like to move them anyway, don't like clutter , out of sight out of mind.

cheers
