Looking for the file that controls what processes are loaded in Linux!
Hi. I know init is responsible for loading all the processes but when I went looking for it (ie /etc), I couldn't find it. I found other files that had a prefix with init in it but I do not think it was what I was looking for. I want to control which processes are loaded. I am using Fedora Core 1.

Also, I would like to know if there is a website that I can look up these processes to find out what they do.

Thanks for your help.

processes are simply number (placeholders) for whatever is running. To find out what is booting, you might want to check out /etc/rc.d or rc#.d

r means runlevel.

rc1 is equivalent to safe mode, rc3 is textmode, rc5 is the gui, rc6 is reboot, and rc0 is halt the system.
