Ubuntu :: Stop VSFTPD Daemon From Loading At Boot?

Jun 9, 2010

I installed VSFTPD via: sudo gedit /etc/vsftpd.conf

I can start/stop using the following:

sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd stop

By default, the daemon loads at boot but I don't want/need it to. I executed the following command thinking it would stop it from loading at boot code...

Can anyone tell me how to stop the VSFTPD daemon from loading at boot?

Ubuntu :: Register A Daemon To Start Up At Boot Time In Lucid?

Aug 23, 2010

What's the best way to register a daemon to start up at boot time in lucid? I have tried registering the following script using "sudo update-rc.d"


This is supposed to get the daemon for opentftp started, but it does nothing, although I can see the results of the "echo 'Server opentftpd started' " in the boot log in /var/log .Any thoughts or general help on what the best way to accomplish such a task is?

General :: Get The Wicd Daemon To Disconnect Wireless Network From The Command Line?

Mar 14, 2011

I'm thrilled using wicd to connect to wireless networks. But when I suspend my laptop using the special keys, I just want to disconnect from wireless without having to use any kind of GUI or curses user interface. It says in the documentation that wicd works by sending DBUS messages, so presumably it's possible to write a command that talks to the daemon directly.But I can't figure out how.Does anybody know by means of what shell command I can tell the wicd daemon to disconnect me from my wireless network?

Ubuntu :: How To Stop Disk Check Every Time On Boot Up

Dec 19, 2010

Every time I boot up I have to go through a disk check and then restart, how do I stop it from happening? When the disk checks happening I press escape and it usually says its deleted inode something because it has zero Dtime or some thing similar and also a paragraph of repeated lines saying something like all system files need alsa base.cnfg it will be ignored in a future release then the disk check completes and it restarts and is fine then, also sometimes it says dev/sda5 (my ubuntu partition) was not cleanly unmounted check forces. Is their a way to stop this happening as it ends up taking ages just to login.

Ubuntu :: Stop Upstart Services From Staring At Boot Time?

Sep 18, 2010

What is the correct way to stop upstart services from staring at boot time ? I'm doing something like this example in /etc/init/mysql.conf:

#start on (net-device-up
# and local-filesystems
# and runlevel [2345])
start on runlevel [!0123456] # I ADDED THIS LINE (and commented the above ones)
stop on runlevel [016]

1. Is this the correct way ?

2. Is there no way of doing something like we do with update-rc.d -f apache2 remove ?

3. When will ubuntu ship a gui to add or remove services from boot ?

I would like to be able to simply run a shortcut file or batch file in a windows os to start or stop my transmission-daemon.I was thinking about using putty to auto login and execute a file using the -m switch. A problem I am running into is that /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stoprequires the use of sudo.That would require entering a password which would be automated and insecure or would require manually typing int he password.

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Use Start-stop-daemon To Execute Process

Sep 27, 2010

I've just installed subversion.I need to create a script /etc/init.d/svnserve that will start at boot time.I want to use start-stop-daemon --start so I can track my process and eventually kill it using start-stop-daemon --stop.My problem is that I can't get it to work and the documentation shows no exemple.

I've replaced $DAEMON by the whole line: svnserve -d -R -r $REPO_ROOT and got -d is not an option.I'm not quite sure what to do at that point. If someone has some experience with start-stop-daemon it would be great.

Slackware :: Can't Install Wicd-1.7.0 In Slackware 13.0 / What Got Lost?

Jan 17, 2011

(Background: my wireless worked fine for a long time using wicd- and then all networks became hidden. The wicd website said there was a bug in and to upgrade.) I obtained wicd-1.7.0.tar.bz2 from Slackware man pages recommend "installpkg <name>". I did "removepkg wicd..." and then install. Installpkg said it could not install it because it did not end in .tgz,.tbz,.tlz, or .txz. I changed the name to wicd-1.7.0.tbz(assuming that was equivalent) and did installpkg again. That gave "Verifying..., Installing..., Warning: package has not been created with 'makepkg'. Package wicd-1.7.0.tbz installed."
There is no entry for it in the Kickoff Application Launcher. There is an entry for it in /var/log/packages. There is in /etc/rc.d./rc.wicd a script marked executable. Can anyone see what got lost?

Slackware :: Tmp Not Clearing Out At Boot Time

Dec 27, 2010

I've been using cron to clear /tmp at boot time but thought I'd try another method. After doing a little research I added the following line:

( cd /tmp && rm -rf -- * .* 2>/dev/null )
to /etc/rc.d/rc.S immediately after:

# Done checking root filesystem

And /tmp is not clearing out at boot time. This method seems to work for others.

Slackware :: Wicd Client Gtk: How To Get Rid Of It

Nov 12, 2010

on my laptops I used to use Wicd with the Gtk GUI. However, now there is a KDE client, which I want to use instead, from now on:

Wicd Client KDE

I installed it, and it works quite well, so far. However, whenever I logon to a KDE session, the older Gtk client is started, too. I then have both Wicd clients sitting next to each other on my panel bar, and I have to manually kill the Gtk client. How do I get rid of the Gtk client in KDE, permanently? BTW, my laptops are running Slackware 13.1 stable with all patches up to now and some additional software from various repositories.

General :: Install / Use WICD On Slackware 13?

Feb 6, 2010

I have no idea where to start with WICD. I know it's on the Slackware 13 CD and where it is on the cd but from there I'm really just lost as what to do with the files there and such.
I'm so used to Windows and programming on Windows in C# .NET and tweaking/hacking there that I have no idea where to really start with Linux so if you have any special tips or places to go to read up on stuff so I can maybe figure out more about Linux and this I'd like that a lot.

Slackware :: Enabling Encryption Using Wicd?

Sep 26, 2010

I have been using wicd successfully for some time, lately with slackware 12. However, when traveling I sometimes find a place that gives an error message "encryption must be enabled".Probably this means that wpa-supplicant must be set up right, but I do not know how to do that.I have wicd starting at startup, then I type wicd on the command line until a prompt does not return, go to a different window, type wicd-client, then start kde and use its link to start wicd. So frequently this works fine; I get a connection to something I have a user name and password for, or am in a coffee shop where no such are required. But sometimes I get the above message. This happened to me in a coffee shop in Helsinki where I was given a user name and password, but still got the above message and could not proceed.

Slackware :: How To Get WICD To Work With Wireless

Mar 10, 2010

My area does not have broadband, but I am able to get 3G on my cell phone. So, I've been tethering it to my laptop when needed, but what I'd like to do is set up my Slackware 13.0 box (which is configured to run as firewall/router/dhcp server so that I can just turn on my phone's wireless router program, and then share it out over the whole network in my house. I'm using a Gigabyte b/g wireless card, which has the RT61 chipset in it. I have NO problems at all getting the wireless card to work with just setting up rc.inet1.conf. The only problem here is when I need to take my cell phone with me, I will not be able to simply turn it back into a WAP, and have my Slackware box auto reconnect to it.

This is why I started looking into using WICD. I do NOT run X, so that's why WICD fits the bill, since it has a cli version. First I tried installing the version that came on the CD. No dice there. I removed that package, and tried the 1.7 package that's on the mirrors under current. I used slackpkg to install it. WICD will run, see wlan0, sees my WAP and a few others, but it fails to connect. It attempts to up the interface, and use dhcp to get an ip, but it fails everytime. My phone's WAP program only does WEP, but I can't get WICD to get an IP with our without WEP enabled. I made sure that my rc.inet1.conf file does not reference any interfaces.
