Software :: How To Stop Services Printing Messages To Terminal

Jan 6, 2011

Every now and then on my non-graphical console-orientated Debian Squeeze system, some services see it fit to spill their juices all over what I am doing.

A message about a service stopping/starting/restarting prints at the location of my cursor ontop of whatever I was doing at that moment, forcing me to either redraw ( if the currently running application supports it ), background and then foreground what I'm doing or clear the screen if at the shell.

* Restarting OpenBSD Secure Shell server sshd
* Restarting advanced system logger rsyslogd
How can I stop these messages appearing? Even better would be to send them to /dev/tty8 where I've configured rsyslogd to write.

Hardware :: How To Stop Annoying Pop-up Messages About Installing Task-Printing-Server

Aug 15, 2010

Mandriva-2009.1 tries to install a package called Task-Printing-Server every time I power up my PSC-1401 All-In-One (multifunction) printer. This is very annoying & I want to stop these pop-up messages.This printer uses the hplip package (PSC_1400.ppd for printing & hpaio for scanning) & everything works fine except for those annoying pop-up messages.

Ubuntu :: Stop Services Without Sudo?

Sep 12, 2010

I am working on a notebook which has both gnome and wmii. I am trying to find a way to script stopping various services when booting into wmii however the "service xxx stop" requires sudo..Is there a way to allow a user to manage services without the need for sudo (aside from password-less sudo)? I assume there are permissions complications with writing the PIDs, etc. Is there a 'simple' solution? Even possible passwordless sudo just for the 'service' command?

Jul 29, 2009

Just installed 5.3/gnome.I am on pc/desktop with only wired internet connection via routerto dsl-modem.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Correct Way To Start Stop Disable Services?

Aug 25, 2010

With the advent of Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx LTS People are migrating servers to the latest LTS. One fundamental thing that has changed is the move to Upstart. In the old days to stop multidaemon service such as Samba, one would simply type /etc/init.d/samba stop and to disable it from starting on boot one would simply type update-rcd samba disable.

Now its the year 2010 and in 10.04 it seems on has to edit a bunch of files, etc. Is there not an easy tool to correctly and properly disable services on startup in 10.04 consistently? in Redhat/Mandrake 10 years ago it was simply

service smb off
In Ubuntu 10.04 its
1) edit /etc/init/smbd.conf and modify the line that says
stop on runlevel [!2345]
and change it to


And one has to remember all these changes when the get ready to enable the samba service in the future? This can't be right.I know I must be missing something here. or maybe overlooked something in the upstart documentation.Which seems quite sparse by the way. So the question remains. How does one simply disable a multidaemon service starting on boot such as samba. Any tool to do this ? Is the above the correct method recommended by Canonical to disable services? and enable them?

Ubuntu :: Method To Start / Stop Services Under Upstart

Jan 22, 2011

I installed MySQL and Apache2 to develop & test out the site I'm writing. However since I'll be using them purely for internal use (not exposed to the Net), I don't want them to start with every boot-up, but would like to start them manually when I desire, and stop them after use.With previous Ubuntu (Jaunty) I'd used chkconfig to configure services, but since the current version (Maverick) uses Upstart, is chkconfig still applicable?

I also installed 'bum' (Boot-Up Manager), but strangely, it displays the MySQL server as "unchecked" even though it's running (and starts at boot-up), so I cant see how I can prevent it from starting at boot-up through bum. chkconfig also displays MySQL as not active at runlevel 5, when in fact, it is.

I'd like to know what's the recommended (official) way to configure boot-up services with the Upstart system? I don't suppose directly editing the *.conf files in /etc/init is the best (or even correct) way?

CentOS 5 :: Printing Of E-mail Messages By Evolution - Some Letters Squished Together While Others Are Spaced Too Far Apart

Oct 25, 2010

When I print e-mail messages from within evolution the output comes out really ugly. Specifically the letter spacing (kerning) is very uneven with some letters squished together while others are spaced too far apart. This happens for printing to a file as well (PostScript or PDF). Attached is an example (converted to jpg). Has anyone else experienced this? I don't know if this is an issue with evolution itself or perhaps a backend used by it for output.

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 ?

OpenSUSE Network :: Stop Firewall From Writting Logs To /var/log/messages?

Jul 19, 2011

I'm running OpenSUSE 11.4. The problem is that I can set easily what to log (for firewall), but not where to log. And currently the same logs are written to /var/log/firewall and /var/log/messages. I still want messages be written into the first one, but not the second one — it is redundant and it is polluting regular system logs.So how to stop the firewall from writting logs to /var/log/messages?

Software :: PostScript Fails To Start - Printing Error Messages "Could Not Get GGV Control: Failed To Activate"

Mar 29, 2011

I have an older version of ggv on RHEL for viewing PostScript (.ps) files, but the binary I have refuses to open files from AFS. ggv-2.12.0 is able to open these files from AFS just fine on my Mac. I was not able to find packaged binaries for RHEL 5 or 6 for ggv-2.12.0, so I downloaded the source and compiled it. Unfortunately, it fails to start, printing these error messages:


Does anyone know the fix? Or alternatively, is there another good and well-maintained PostScript viewer for Linux?
