Looks like “systemd/systemctl” are taking over from System V service controls in Linux. Fedora 16 this is the default manager for controlling the services on Linux. I was attempting to use “chkconfig” and it kept forwarding the request to “systemctl” so I was finally forced to look at the man pages and the Fedora page and so far I like what I see except the assigning of start levels takes too many keystrokes and too long to check status.
Not completely sold on “systemd” but I will work with it and see how it does for now it seems to be working just fine.
Here are some helpful links:
