running with minimal services

  • run system-config-services
  • be sure to show the checkboxes for all runlevels: select Edit Runlevel -> Runlevel All
  • I have running: acpid, anacron, atd, auditd, autofs, crond, iptables, network, ntpd, syslog, and am still looking to make this set smaller :-)
  • even after disabling the Red Hat network daemon, you still need to do rpm -e rhn-applet to get rid of that stupid icon in the panel
