Krcstat is a graphic replacement for the Gentoo rc-status and
rc-update command line utilities.It can be used to check all your
services are active and generate an alert if they are not. You may
easily create new runlevels and drag services from the Services pane
into them. (Alternate runlevels may be specified by using the softlevel
parameter on the kernel command line in Grub or Lilo.)

Note that the active monitoring for a failed service only works if the
service script uses the "start-stop-daemon" command which records the process name. Not all scripts use this, e.g. apache2. Other services are simply checks that run once and do not start a daemon.

Krcstat is a bit conservative and will not let you delete the boot or default
runlevels or certain boot services deemed as critical. This is to stop you
rendering your system unbootable! To use its configuration features it no longer
needs to run as root, it uses a shell to executes commands using sudo.

This latest version is upgraded to use KDE 4.* and also supports Gentoo Baselayout Release 2. Also a regression caused a segfault if there are orphaned symlinks after removing a package.
