question on init.d


I added snmpd RPM. The main script is in /etc/init.d/ I went to each of the rc folder to check if SNMP is there or not. Just wondering if there is easy way to check other than cd to each folder to check if the service is there or not.
For example, this is what I did.
ls -l /etc/rc3.d/*snmp*
ls -l /etc/rc2.d/*snmp*
ls -l /etc/rc1.d/*snmp*

What OS are you using?

Please post the results of the "ls" commands you post. On most unix O/S these would be soft links back to /etc/init.d (or some similar named directory) in which case you would only need to look for the original file. An init script should be written to react to the standard parameter "start" or "stop" which is provided by "rc" when unix changes run state.
I assume that "is there" means that the package is installed.
There will almost certainly be a parameter file which sets whether the service itself actually starts (read the init script to find the parameter file).

# rpm -qlp httpd-2.2.3-53.el5.centos.i386.rpm | grep -i httpd

You can find where it will save the binary ...
