With that approach, how can you get a list of
services that have been disabled using updated-rc.d?
btw, I am curious that Debian now has several ways to enable/disable
- installing/removing the package with apt-get
- editing the /etc/default/servicename file
- managing the symlinks with update-rc.d
- the permissions of the /etc/init.d/servicename script
Is this diversity intended to make systems easier to
administer? (I guess it's okay after you learn about it.)
