redhat-config-services - Service Configuration Utility SYNTAX
redhat-config-services DESCRIPTION
This is a graphical tool for enabling and disabling services (including xinetd services). Functionality to start, stop, and restart ser- vices is also included. OPTIONS
/usr/bin/redhat-config-services /usr/share/serviceconf/* EXAMPLES
To run this program simply type: redhat-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 (redhat-config-services will appear to hang in these instances). This is not a bug in redhat-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. AUTHORS
