    Starting and stopping daemons

    I would like to shutdown some of the daemons that keep starting up when I boot Red Hat. For instance...sendmail. I don't even use it. Could someone point me to a tutiorial on how to do this. Thanks!

    hello,
    linuxconf can do this under the services tab, of you can find out what runlevel you are using (if graphical then it is 5, else it is most likey 3) and look in the directory /etc/rc#.d/ where the # should be a 3 or a 5, then remove S##sendmail, in my case it is S80sendmail, which i am sure is also for you. Just remove anything that starts with an S## that you don't want starting upon init.

    in redhat its easy. If you run gnome or kde theres a service config gui. If not when your logged in as root (not su'd) just type setup
