Are runlevels really obsolete? That's according to the runlevel man page.
Also, I have been reading the fedora 17 documentation, and found that there is a lot of incorrect/out-dated documentation on runlevels. I'm hoping to find out how the out-dated runlevel system has changed, and also when the change was made.
hi all,i have a live flash media server running on centos 5 64bit in a distant datacenter thats in runlevel 5. my question is if i ran telinit 3 to change from the current runlevel of 5... [by bashir_centos]
I would like to see messages of each init-script when changing runlevel (i.e. from runlevel 5 to runlevel 4). This would give me certainty, if services would really be started/stopped. No preference, if shown in startup/shutdown-style (with [OK] at the end of the line) or plain output of a manually called init-script (/etc/init.d/...).
I currently try to harden the system and the security of a Debian server running a database and a source code management. I just want networking and me (one user) to be able to login. Which runlevel is best for this?
I found out that my current runlevel is 2, but maybe 1 or 3 would be better. If so, how can I achieve this?
I was trying to debug my linux boot process. If I set default runlevel to 2 or 3 my system hangs without giving me prompt. So I was able to get to runlevel 1 via kernel parameter. and ran all scripts in rc2.d via service ***** start/stop commands and it was fine. But if I do a telinit to runlevel 2 or 3. I cant see my shell prompt. So what is the diff between to approaches ?
