RE: Service Configuration



Thanks very much. I will try and find out what is causing this, by checking
the services.
I also installed many packages when in an enthousiastic mood.

Greetings, Jan

As I explained earlier, if the problem is not a slow computer,
then your problem may be related to installed services that
are not cooperating with the services gui, and in this case,
you may need to figure out which services are "conflicting"
and disable and/or remove it.

There is no easy answer to this.  It took me some time,
to get through *each* service to determine which was "bad"
but eventually, I got it.   I did not keep track which services
were "bad" other than I remembered libvirt.

Some services do not respond well with the services-gui
program and this may the the reason why it is 'slow', but
watching the CPU/Mem gkrellm monitor, it was very
compute intensive.  And yes, it took 25-20 MINUTES,
not SECONDS on a slow (antiquated) system, but then
again, I installed almost every package on my system but
very few services were actually active (I used chkconfig to
turn off all services except the critical ones), even so, the
services-gui contacts (it seems) *all* services in order to
determine it's state, which may explain why it is so slow,
because the status response is not necessarily fast, nor
guaranteed to respond in a timely manner, if at all.
