Don't start processes on startup

Postby denise » 2004-03-21 06:55

Hi,
I'm glad to see this forum is getting a litlle more visited already. M
Maybe somebody can give me an answer on my question.
I've installed debian and now I have some processes started on startup that I don't need.
How can I get only the processes started that I need?

make the following:

cd /etc/init.d
update-rc.d -f <process that you want to get rid of> remove

ex : update-rc.d -f lpd remove

Thanks for your fast reply.

But when I do this is, can I ever put it back?
In other words: Is it deleted or just out of this particular configuration and possible to put it back if I want to?
I'm asking this because I don't want to destroy my installation when I "undress" my installation to much.

yes with the same command
try just update-rc.d and press enter to see all the options
the command jut deletes the entries from the runlevel not the file itself
