redhat-config-services


SYNTAX

       redhat-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/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.
