I come from a RedHat Linux (and Solaris background. I currently work with Centos 5, to provide a point of reference. Let it be known that I do not enjoy RPM.
I gather that the init scripts (service.py) for each daemon resides in
directory. Assuming that is correct, how do I easily start and stop services from the command line? I am aware that Pardus is desktop-focused, however I typically SSH into a box, using the command line only. I rarely need or use a desktop/VNC connection.
With other Linuxes one could predictably expect to use
With Pardus, the service.py is scattered throughout the package folders.IS there another mechanism I am not aware of, can these packages be reliably symlinked to /etc/init.d, and 3rd, will the upcoming server distro take a different approach?
I have never help onto a copy of any desktop Linux for very long, but Pardus seems to be sticking around. I like the implementation and of course once you like something you think of putting it on the server. However, I need to know this (and other) answers before I can trust what I'm doing.
