Funnyingly, chkconfig was the only tool that saved me in
en/disabling services that I did not want and yes, it works.
I wonder, however, if chkconfig is improperly set for
s-c-s to be able to hook to it. Hm.
# chkconfig -v
chkconfig version 1.3.37
-rwxr-xr-x root root system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0 /sbin/chkconfig
Other than the version difference, it looks ok to me, how about you?
