Debian Convert - Basic System Management [Solved]

Postby shimmi » Wed Jul 23, 2014 2:01

Hello all, first post on these forums.

First thing's first, i'm a Debian diehard, have been for a long time, maybe because i went through univeristy learning Debian (standard installs on our machines). At work we use RedHat and i use Debian for my development at work. I'm beyond impressed with Sabayon, particually, package managment. The flexibility of your package managment is far supperior to apt-get and yum combined (in my opinion). Needless to say, i'm now doing all my development on Sabayon and have given the .iso and it's recommendation to the rest of the 'younger' programmers at work.

I've just got a couple of questions to make sure i'm on the right track, im sure it's only simple.
1. Regarding start-up applications -- I usually just (Depending on Distrubution)
Code: Select all
#cd /etc/init.d    /*or*/    cd /etc/rc.d
#chmod -x whatEver

To disable something such as avahi-daemon. But avahi still boots at start-up. I've never really had this program before. I could just un-install it, but for the time being i've got a simple perl script killing it after boot.

2. Updating the System -- Is this right ?
I've already updated equo to the latest version as per the wiki.
Code: Select all
#equo update
#equo upgrade --ask

..Updates all the packages and security patches on the system ? Then... i assume...
Code: Select all
#equo deptest
#equo libtest
#equo cleanup


Thanks for any help and thankyou for the great effort the teams put into this distrubution.

Sabayon uses systemd for it's init system (which is pretty rapidly being used by more and more distros).

Here's our wiki on it: https://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?titl ... O:_systemd

You'll also find that Arch has a great wiki on systemd, although you'd want to change out any package management stuff with Sabayon's obviously: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/systemd

So use systemd for startup things.

Other than that, you're bullet point #2 is spot on. Although don't forget to do a
Code: Select all
# equo conf update

after an upgrade if it prompts you to.
