handling runlevels independently with update-rc.d
I am in the course of writing a graphical runlevel editor, and I happen to
have the following questions:
1) What would you recommend to create the symlinks in the various runlevels,
what is the preferred way of manipulating the runlevel stuff?
a) ln -s
My first thought was to use the latter, but I encountered a problem, which
lead to my next question.
2) If I remove all symlinks in all runlevels (basically "update-rc.d -f
proftpd remove"), create a startup link ("update-rc.d proftpd start 50
4 ."), creating a stop link fails with the following output:
# update-rc.d proftpd stop 50 4 .
System startup links for /etc/init.d/proftpd already exist.
This seems a bit odd to me, I checked twice, the startup link command did
not create any Knnproftpd links. So why's that?
The default option of update-rc.d only lets me create links for runlevels
3,4 and 5, so this one's out since I want to use the respective runlevels
independently from each other.
