    removing sendmail from bootup


    hello,

    pls i need help:

    when i installed my RH, i had selected SendMail as one of the pkgs to be installed....i dont really need it so ive removed it from using the add/remove pkgs, the problem is that sendmail is still probed during bootup time, making the bootup time unnecessarily longer....how can i remove sendmail from startup

    thanks
    Toks

    I think you could run:
    Code:
    # chkconfig --del sendmail
    If you'd like you can now remove the sendmail startup script in /etc/rc.d/init.d/
