Re: script to turn off services



Not to be argumentative, but:

Since when does "service <servicename> status" give anything different
than "/etc/init.d/<servicename> status"?

It certainly doesn't, on my system:

[root burgers ~]# service dansguardian status
Parent DansGuardian pid:3379
[root burgers ~]# /etc/init.d/dansguardian status
Parent DansGuardian pid:3379
[root burgers ~]# service dovecot status
dovecot (pid 3081) is running...
[root burgers ~]# /etc/init.d/dovecot status
dovecot (pid 3081) is running...
[root burgers ~]# service bluetooth status
hcid is stopped
sdpd is stopped
hidd is stopped
[root burgers ~]# /etc/init.d/bluetooth status
hcid is stopped
sdpd is stopped
hidd is stopped
