Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Fedora Core is used as non-production (desktop) system by many users,
and developers. For those like me, the load time, before I can login
and start using the system can be high. The solutions is of course,
not to start some services.
Yet, I've managed a simple solution. I created a "10 runlevel" where I
put those services I need, like mysql, apache, sendmail, etc... When
gnome and/or kde starts a 10 runlevel init is called. This way those
services are loaded only if I whish, and after the system is running.
Also, many services are subject to what u are doing. An applet to
quickly start/stop services based in profiles like "work at project
A", "work at project B", "home and games", would be nice.
This is out of scope for system-config-services.
While I agree with long boot times being a problem I don't think the approach
you suggest is the right solution. Different approaches to reduce boot times are
and have been discussed at fedora-devel-list, perhaps you should participate there.
NB: IIRC there are quite some tools who would have problems with
