      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Services and Daemons needed [solved]

Recommended Posts

These are the services I have on and off. Are there others I can safely turn off, and are there any that I turned off that I should have on?

 

Thanks,

Kieth

Going by what I see, you could disable the following:

 

mandi
mdadm
netfs
nfs-common
openvpn
pppoe
resolvconf
rpcbind
smb

 

mandi is the firewall, so if you want and need this because your internet connection doesn't have a firewall, or is directly connected to your computer, you can leave this. mdadm is for raid arrays, so if you know you didn't install raid partitions, etc, then you can disable this. netfs, nfs-common are NFS so if you are not using NFS then you can disable these. smb is samba, so if you are not using samba, then disable this also. rpcbind is used by samba and nfs, so if you are not using both samba and nfs, then you can disable this. If you use either nfs, or samba, then leave this enabled. resolvconf you can disable, as it's a pain in the backside. pppoe can be disabled if you are not using it for your internet connection on this machine. If your machine connects directly to the internet, then there is chances you are using this maybe? If your internet is via a router or not connected directly to your machine, you can safely disable it.

 

I'm not sure about portreserve, so I cannot tell you whether it's safe to disable this or not.

Mandi is only needed for the interactive firewall AFAIK -- I haven't got it runnign (nor installed), but do have shorewall running...

ACPID does something for ACPI, but I have been running without it for years (but my PC is 2004 vintage and is not a big user of ACPI -- suspend/hibernate never worked so may be that is why I can get away without it)

CUPS, only if you print
