service enable framework

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


The chkconfig tool on openSUSE handles enabling and disabling of sysv init scripts and [x]inetd services.
chkconfig apache2 on
chkconfig vsftpd inetd
This convenience allows us to ship services disabled by default. So installation of packages doesn't automatically cause more running daemons or exposed network services.
There are many other kinds of services though so the framework should be extended to handle them as well:
- systemd units
- dbus services
- apache modules
- [list more here]

Ideally the services should be managed by symlinks like sysv init scripts so no .rpmnew files hurt distro upgrades.
