Services run at boot-up


Hello everyone,

I'd like to know if there is a graphical utility for editing the services that start during bootup. I know that both Mandrake and Fedora Core have them. It's just that there are a whole ton of services most ordinary users will never use that just take up system loading time. It would be a pain in the neck for many people to have to go into a terminal and manually edit commands in /etc/rc*.d

If you run KDE then KsysV for gnome or the others no clue.

On Debian I've used sysvconfig to manage services and on Ubuntu you may, with any luck, find sysvconfig from the universe repo. It's not exactly a GUI (more like a TUI, Terminal User Interface) but it's easy to use. After installation, open a terminal window and start the program with "sudo sysvconfig". After finishing sysvconfig, you need to reboot for the changes to take effect.

Another method I have used for these situations, is apt-getting webmin and its various modules. It supports a lot of configuration with its modules: Everything from System configuration (such as boot-up processes) to server-specific (such as Apache or SQUID Proxy). I suggest you fireup Synaptic and run a search on Webmin to see what all it can do for you. Be sure to have set up a root password, however; you will need it for login
