Re: Making SysV boot scripts reboot faster
Thomas Hood quotes rcconf(8):
Rcconf checks 'defaults' links in /etc/rc?.d/ directories for choice as
unset, whether the package has the start file with the same number in
/etc/rc?.d/(?:=2345) directories (rc?.d/S??name), and stop file with
the same number in /etc/rc?.d/(?:=2345) directories(rc?.d/K??name). And
Rcconf also checks in /etc/init.d/ directory for choice as set.

Incomprehensible, isn't it? What it actually does is puts up a Dialog
interface that makes it easy to disable and re-enable services without
needing to understand about symlinks. It needs work (esp. on the
documentation) but I think it has possibilities. I think it could be
expanded to a runlevel editor that would make things like configuring a
RedHat-like setup easy enough for new users to do it. Too bad the
maintainer is evidently MIA.
