    help finding process and changing things at boot


    Im running Debian Sarge with Gnome environment..I also have VNC server running but would like to find the process and kill it. I would also like to disable this service from starting on boot. Where do I do this at in Debian?

    go to /etc/init.d and see if it is listed in that folder. If it is, do
    Code:
    update-rc.d -f  name_of_script remove

    The best program for managing your services is sysv-rc-conf.
    Another option would be to use bum.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    try this go to /ect/rc2.d and look for the process. then just add a '_' before it so it doesnt start. if you want to re-enable it u just remove the '_'.

    mv process _process
    is used to add the underscore
