Thread: rc levels

  1. #1

    rc levels

    in inittab default runlevel is 5
    I installed mysql and created ln to start it in rc3.d.
    After the reboot mysql is not started.
    After that I created ln in rc5.d to start my sql.
    After the reboot mysql is started.

    I was under impression that even if default runlevel is 5 OS will start scripts from rc3.d anyway...it's like run level 5=all that in runleve 3 + all that in run level 5,,,,,,Am I wrnog here?
    thx

    Hello,
    Yes - you are wrong! If it is a link in /etc/rc5.d and it starts with an S it will be started, S01 will be started before S02 etc. No init scrpits will be started from another run level.

    So you say init 5 looks only in rc5.d and rc3.d is not inspected for runlevel 5?

    Yes. That is correct...

    Run levels are not herchnary ( sp?? ) .... They are truely independent from each other.... You start some services in rc3 that you may not want to start if it's with rc5 since rc5 is Xwindow default.
