Problem

How to manage services in Ubuntu – looking for similar thing as “service” used in RedHat-clones.

Analysis

List of available software is the following:

  • sysv-rc-conf – best
  • rcconf – does not enable to set runlevel
  • bootup-manager
  • System -> Preferences – > Startup Applications – very simple

Solution

sysv-rc-conf is our choice and recommendation.
