Wicd at startup

Postby dragonauta » Fri Mar 12, 2010 11:27

Hi, I just installed Sabayon 5.1 KDE and I'm very happy with it.
It's my first time with a Gentoo based distro.
I'm in linux since 2002 so I'm not a noob, but always can learn some new things I didn't know.

I've installed, and updated Sabayon, added some new applications like Inkscape and The Gimp and all my hardware works perfectly.

The only 'issue' is that Wicd crashes when I start my session and I don't have wireless hardware. I have a desktop PC.

How would be the right steps to disable wicd or any services?
Maybe taking away execution permission on the right /etc/init.d scripts?
I don't want to want to break my new system :wink:

Thanks in advance

Hi, welcome to Sabayon forums :mrgreen:

I think that it would be better not to change permissions over the system, this is always a source of major pain sooner or later, at least in my experience.

Just open up a console, use su to become root, and run this command:
Code: Select all
rc-update del wicd default

then remove wicd-client from the application autostart.

If you don't use wicd, you could also want to entirely remove it with:
Code: Select all
equo remove --ask --deep wicd

(--deep is to remove the config files too)

The "Gentoo way" of disabling services is using rc-update.

:D Thanks micia for your welcome and for such nice response!!

Right now I feel as if I had a new car.
I know how to drive, but I'm not comfortable yet with the new environment 8)

[notes-to-myself]
man rc-update
man equo

Thanks Again!
