RCCONF(8)                      Debian GNU/Linux                      RCCONF(8)

       rcconf - Debian Runlevel configuration tool

       rcconf [options]

       Rcconf allows you to control which services are started when the system
       boots up or reboots.  It displays a menu of all the services which
       could be started at boot.  The ones that are configured to do so are
       marked and you can toggle individual services on and off.

       Rcconf gets a list of services from /etc/init.d and looks in the
       /etc/rc?.d directories to determine whether each service is on or off.

       If the number(NN of /etc/rc?.d/NNname) is not 20(default), rcconf saves
       the service name and the number in /var/lib/rcconf/services so as to be
       able to restore the service to its original configuration.

       --help Print out a usage message.
       --dialog Use dialog command to display menu
       --whiptail Use whiptail command to display menu
            For each service that had the links changed, call the correspond-
            ing /etc/init.d/service-name script using invoke-rc.d, so the
            package starts or stops immediately. If you do not use this
            option, the changes will only take effect the next time you reboot
            (or change runlevel).

       --verbose Output verbose messages.

Guide File
       Rcconf can display some description(Guide) for each services with Guide
       File.  Guide File is placed on /var/lib/rcconf/guide, and this Guide
       File does not exist by default.  If you want to use Guide, you need to
       define guides for each services in this file.

       If you run update-rcconf-guide before rcconf, rcconf can use default
       guides derived from package description.  Update-rcconf-guide generates
       the file '/var/lib/rcconf/guide.default' from package description(only
       uses first line of it) using apt-cache.  Rcconf refers Guides in
       /var/lib/rcconf/guide before /var/lib/rcconf/guide.default.

       If you install some packages after executed update-rcconf-guide, you
       need to re-create this file using update-rcconf-guide so as to refresh
       guide.default that includes new guides for installed new services.

               The service number data file.

               Lock file.

               Guide File update-rcconf-guide generates.

               Guide File user(Administrator) can define.
