Good morning Suse Experts
I have found this very extensive tutorial on Suse Security written by Æleen Frisch (author of Essential System Administration)
For most of the services i have discovered what their function is on my linux box, but i can not find any documentation on the following services:
Service…YAST->System Services (RunLevel)-> Internal Comment:
a11y…enables a11y support on livecd ??
acpid…acpid reads events from /proc/acpi/event and dispatches them (by SuSE default) to other “users” like powersaved, HAL and IAL. Actions for those events are (by SUSE default) configured in the powersaved configuration. Additionally this start script loads all needed modules.??
brld…Starts brld the braille server ??
sbl…Start suse-blinux ??
avahi-daemon…Avahi, a ZeroConf daemon for mDNS and service registration ??
fbsetup…Framebuffer setup ??
nscd…Start Name Service Cache Daemon ??
postfix…Start the Postfix MTA ??
rpcbind…TI-RPC program number mapper ??
splash…Splash screen setup ??
splash_early…Kills animation after network start ??
stopblktrace…Stopping and parsing the blktrace output ??
Can you help me with finding more documentation on these services? so i can determine if i can shut these services down or not?
Is there a way / command / program that helps me to identify which service (deamon) belongs to with installed software package?
Thanks for your time and answers
