stopping Daemons and symbolic links


I am trying to stop the daemon S28autofs. I am hoping that by stopping this usb sticks won't be automatically mounted.

I have tried stopping this daemon by actually deleting it from /etc/rc.d/initd. and all the rc0.d through to rc6.d. I did try and stop it by typing typing /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs stop but it didn't stop.

I thought that the init.d and all the rc0-5.d were linked.

I am obviously doing something wrong and would really appreciate someone's help on this matter, please.

I wan't to learn all of these commands and bash shell stuff and be comfortable with linux, so that's why I persist so much.

I'm going to assume that "S28autofs" is the process???

If so, all you have to do is ps aux | grep S28autofs

That'll return the process ID and you can then kill it using the kill command. Hope that helps.

Hello riscphree

Thanks for your reply. I deleted all the "S28autofs" files from rc0-6.d folders. Even though I've done this my usb stick still mounts all on it's own. What a laugh!

I'm working on something else now. I decided to give it a rest.
Thanks for your help.
