Is there some tool that displays all available init scripts (on Debian), short of one having to remember a location like /etc/init.d, not to mention that not everything in there is an init script?


The chkconfig utility can do this. Unlike RHEL or SLES, it does not come installed by default in Debian, but it is a good end-user tool for sysvinit configuration. To list all sysvinit services:

chkconfig --list
