Re: Simplest way to reconstruct /etc/rc?.d

While I understand it's not ideal, this does seem to have done the trick. I used:

for i in `ls`
update-rc.d $i defaults

I had a hard drive glitch that seems to have screwed up some of the

dpkg-reconfigure xdm

replacing xdm with whatever package I've noticed needs to be redone.
But I'd rather just set them all to their defaults, which is what
this system uses anyway. Is there an easy way to do that, instead of
trying to figure out what's broken and fixing it one by one?

'update-rc.d foobar defaults' will set service foobar to default
runlevels. Now you just need a magic shell incantation to do this for
every file in /etc/init.d

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
