    Enabling Services on Startup after Installation


    Hi,

    I've googled this but can't find anything useful. I stupidly didn't select some services I wanted to start on startup upon installation. Is there any way I can gt them to start up anyway?

    The services I want to start are:

    rc.atalk
    rc.bind
    rc.cups
    rc.dnsmasq
    rc.hald
    rc.hplip
    rc.httpd
    rc.inetd
    rc.ip_forward
    rc.messagebus
    rc.mysqld
    rc.ntpd
    rc.pcmcia
    rc.rpc
    rc.samba
    rc.saslauthd
    rc.scanluns
    rc.sendmail
    rc.snmpd
    rc.syslog
    rc.sshed

    Thanks very much! Is all this sort of thing in the manual? I couldn't find it.......

    Thanks again!

    Matt. I

    I've not used Slackware for a couple of years, but I think you need to do
    Code:
    #chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.service
    to disable a serivce from running at boot time
    Code:
    #chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.service
