Want to know what that service does?Tue, May 1, 2007
I regularly run services I don’t need…until I find out what they do. After that, I immediately (or semi-immediately) turn them off. I was perusing Red Hat Magazine today and found a neat article that details just about every System V service available on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
This list should be pretty applicable for Fedora Core 6 as well. I looked at a few of the items on the list and those were explained pretty well.
