4.6.2. Booting, init etc.

  • Can you reboot the system as a normal user? Why is that?

  • According to your current runlevel, name the steps that are taken during shutdown.

  • How do you change the system runlevel? Switch from 3 to 5 and vice versa.

  • Make a list of all the services and daemons that are started up when your system has booted.

  • Which kernel is currently load at startup?

  • Suppose you have to start some exotic server at boot time. Up until now, you logged in after booting the system and started this server manually using a script named deliver_pizza in your home directory. What do you have to do in order to have the service start up automatically in run level 4, which you defined for this purpose only?
