Services & Auto-Updating

The services running for each runlevel are located in the respective
folders, /etc/rcX.d/ with X meaning the runlevel. There might be an
easier way to do this but I am not sure, I just go in to rc5.d/ (5 is
the default runlevel for ubuntu, multiuser with X) and get rid of what I
know I don't need or want by using this command "update-rc.d -f whatever
remove" you can also add them back by issuing "update-rc.d whatever
defaults" Now when you do this they will still be running unless you
either stop them via /etc/init.d/ or reboot. Also use the name
from /etc/init.d/ and not the name with the S or K in front of it
located in the /etc/rcX.d/ directory. S means start and K means kill so
something like S20gdm would mean that gdm starts but K20gdm would mean
it stops. I hope this helps, I tried to explain this the best I could
but I am not exactly an expert or anything, maybe someone will point out
a simpler solution.
