Description:

This program is a small and simple tool that manages the available "services" in a Debian (or Debian-based) box.
In fact, this program is a front-end for the update-rc.d tool.
You can start, stop and restart services. You can set (or unset) each service to be launched when booting the system.

Using the program:
First of all: you must run the program as root, or vía sudo:
you@your-box $ sudo debian-srv-cp

Download and requeriments

Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb http://www.laclavedefa.org/debian-srv-cp/ ./

As root, type in a console:

apt-get update

apt-get install debian-srv-cp

You will need the package gambas-gb-qt (and its dependences, of course).

Hi when I try to start the app I get this error msg "ERROR: #2: Cannot load class 'FPrincipal': Version too old. Please recompile."

When I try to recompile I get something similar.
"Unknown identifer: fich at line 5 in FPrinciple.class"

Is there anyway to fix this?

Sys Info: Debian 3.1, KDE 3.3

Thanks,

The Borg Queen

Hello! Nice program!
Is it possible to add some improvements like sequence number and runlevels for service (when we set it to run by init)?

Like I said in the description, the program aims to be a simple tool.

For detailed control (runlevels, state, ...), you may use the program ksysv, included in KDE

nice prog!

what i'm missing is the ability to see the state of the services (already running, inactiv...)

I've looked into this once while working on another program, and unfortunately Debian makes this REALLY hard to do. Most other distros implement the 'status' command in all their service scripts -- so you can go:

/etc/init.d/cups status

to find out if it's running.

Debian doesn't have this, and no-one I know has found another reasonable way of finding the state of a service.

got it. Dosent seem to be very clever by debian :-(

I found that they use 'skeleton'-files to create the init-scripts. These skeletons contain a name of a PID file (at least mostly). Perhaps a simple grep on that PID name with a check on the PID file could give an indication on the processstatus?!

Very nice, but when I maximize the Window it doesn't maximize the fields.
