In the good old days, all daemons resided in /etc/init.d with symbolic links in /etc/init.d/rc.d. That made stopping, starting and checking any daemon very simple, just invoking it with "stop", "start" and "status", respectively.
Today, since only very few daemons survive in /etc/init.d and /etc/init.d/rc.d, I have no other means to control the major part of them than by using the Services Manager in YaST.
Is there no more any simplified way of controlling daemons, analogous to that described above?
Have a nice Pentecost day, hopefully less cold than in Germany (at the moment 9.7° in Hannover, incredible!).
I find the documentation to be quite helpful
