Media/File Server in Just Starting Linux Posted August 7, 2012 · Report reply Those can usually be started as a service. Look into the "chkconfig" command to see if you can set them to start at specific run-levels. I will give it a shot and let you know. Thanks I have never set any auto start except with scripts. you can just run the command runlevel and it will show what runlevel you are in then you can use the chkconfig command that Dungeon-Dave mentioned to configure it to boot when booted in that runevel. example my runlevel for my server is 3. So you could then do the following if you wanted vnc to startup on runlevel 3. chkconfig --levels 3 vnc on man chkconfig shows more detailed info about the command I am in runlevel 2, which I just found out is the default in Debian. I will have to chkconfig and see what is currently listed and add vnc if necessary. At this point I have webmin installed and while it may be a simple interface and easy to configure, I would really like to know exactly what it is doing and possibly just use the command line or vnc as needed. I know there are simple packages out there to do what I am wanting with this server but I am a die hard tweaker. And I want to be able to set this up the way I want. I really appreciate the assistance and information. When I get home tomorrow I will check everything and see where I stand.
