I'm trying to disable some services from starting at boot time on my Linux Mint 12 laptop. So I installed chkconfig, which has worked great for me before on Fedora. However, on Linux Mint 12, it gives me tons of errors. Here is an example, trying to disable the rsync service:

$ sudo chkconfig rsync off

It seems to have worked when I run:

# chkconfig rsync
  rsync  off

Is it bad to continue to use chkconfig? Can anyone suggest an alternate service-managing program, or a way to fix the errors when running chkconfig?

Since it is an ubuntu based distro you can also use update-rc.d.

update-rc.d rsync remove

or install rcconf wich is a really nice text-based user interface

Actually, rcconf seems to be more of what I'm looking for. Thanks for the tip. –  Isaac May 24 '12 at 21:43

According to this Linux Mint Community document, chkconfig works but does kick out errors.

You should review the documentation on using upstart as I believe Linux Mint is moving to this method for controlling system services.

Thanks. I guess I'll be studying up on upstart then. –  Isaac May 24 '12 at 15:43
