Linux Services at startup

The kill files listed in the appropriate startup directory (rc3.d for runlevel 3) are run when the previous runlevel was that number. The startup scripts are run for the current runlevel. We will concentrate on the startup scripts for runlevel 3. These scripts are listed below.

  1. S05apmd -> ../init.d/apmd
  2. S10network -> ../init.d/network
  3. S11portmap -> ../init.d/portmap
  4. S15netfs -> ../init.d/netfs
  5. S20random -> ../init.d/random
  6. S30syslog -> ../init.d/syslog
  7. S32gated -> ../init.d/gated
  8. S40atd -> ../init.d/atd
  9. S40crond -> ../init.d/crond
  10. S45pcmcia -> ../init.d/pcmcia
  11. S50inet -> ../init.d/inet
  12. S55named -> ../init.d/named
  13. S60lpd -> ../init.d/lpd
  14. S60mars-nwe -> ../init.d/mars-nwe
  15. S60nfs -> ../init.d/nfs
  16. S65dhcpd -> ../init.d/dhcpd
  17. S72amd -> ../init.d/autofs
  18. S75keytable -> ../init.d/keytable
  19. S80sendmail -> ../init.d/sendmail
  20. S85gpm -> ../init.d/gpm
  21. S85httpd -> ../init.d/httpd
  22. S90xfs -> ../init.d/xfs
  23. S91smb -> ../init.d/smb
  24. S95innd -> ../init.d/innd
  25. S99linuxconf -> ../init.d/linuxconf
  26. S99local -> ../rc.local

These files are softlinks to files in the directory "/etc/rc.d/init.d". The first script is the apmd startup script.
