Thread: Alternative to RHEL/CentOS terminal command "setup" in Opensuse

  1. #1

    Default Alternative to RHEL/CentOS terminal command "setup" in Opensuse

    Hello,

    I have installed opensuse in my PC, and I would like to stop unwanted(for me) services like cups, bluetooth etc from starting at boot up.
    Back in my office(running CentOS), I run "setup" command from the terminal which gives me a GUI for doing this..

    Is this command available in opensuse terminal(Its not there by default) or can anyone suggest me an alternative.

    i know i can disable services one by one through command line. But its too tedious and i dont know the name of most services.

    YaST. It also runs in text mode. Call it "yast" in a terminal. One of
    the modules does what you want.

    However, some functionality might not be there after the migration to
    systemd.

    Not sure how to do this from the terminal but here is a gui Yast2 method. If you are running KDE you can ALT-F1 to get the kickstart menu and then type "yast" and hit enter.
    You will be asked to authenticate and then Yast2 will start up.
    Type in the search "services" , click once on "System Services" and then disable, enable any service you want.

    hope this makes sense

    It seems that you were not aware that YaST is the system management tool of openSUSE. That is strange, because it should be one of the main reasons to use openSUSE. And YaST is mentioned in most of the the primers on openSUSE. My advice would be to start YaST and look around a bit at the several sections there. II will give you an idea what YaST is for. And hopefully, when you have to do some system management task, you wll think: "Oh. when I remember correctly, I saw something about that in YaST".

    Thank you for you advice, I was aware of YaST but never knew its true potentials and that it had a command line interface..
