NAME

system-config-services - Service Configuration Utility

CONTENTS

SYNTAX

system-config-services

DESCRIPTION

This is a graphical tool for enabling and disabling services (including xinetd services). Functionality to start, stop, and restart services is also included.

OPTIONS

None

FILES

/usr/bin/system-config-services
/usr/share/serviceconf/*

EXAMPLES

To run this program simply type:

system-config-services

LIMITATIONS

This utility currently execs chkconfig --add/--del <servicename> when enabling and disabling services. This means that it does not have the same default behaviour as ntsysv.

SEE ALSO

chkconfig(8) ntsysv(8)

BUGS

- Some services will not start or stop properly if started anywhere but the console (system-config-services will appear to hang in these instances). This is not a bug in system-config-services, but in the individual services.

- Some services are incredibly hard to detect if they are running or not. Starting, stopping and restarting initscripts may give mixed results (ie. may fail if you are stopping a service that’s already stopped, etc). This will be fixed; until then it’s a bug.
