systemd, how can I configure a service not to start at boot, even if it was running when I most recently shut down? I know that I can disable a service, but if I start that service, then reboot, it will continue to run. I want this:
- Start the service now.
- Service is not active/running.
I searched the web for an answer, but I found too much noise from people asking and answering about starting/stopping and enabling/disabling services in general. From what I can tell, I suppose I want to explicitly disable the service at boot time. I'm an Advanced Beginner with Linux. Where would I put this instruction to ensure that it happens at the appropriate point in the boot sequence?
Or is there another sensible and reliable way to do this?
UPDATE: I decided, in the end, that I shouldn't install this as a service at all. This seems obvious, looking back.
