Hi All,

Having a problem with something else, and want to eliminate SS as a possibility. I am still a newbie to Linux, and do not know how to turn SS off. Can anyone give me instructions?

Thanks for all help.

With Fedora, at a root prompt: "service slimserver stop"

You can control service startup with "ntsysv"

How do you turn it on? Which disto?

On many Linux distros, there is a "standard" way to turn daemons on and
off with the shell.

For Mandriva and similar systems, you can do the following as root/su
/etc/rc.d/init.d/slimserver stop
and to restart
/etc/rc.d/init.d/slimserver start

There is nearly always a gui to control it, in Mandriva it is mcc, or
"Configure your Computer" -> system -> services

And with Ubuntu, debian, and similar the analogous commands are typically:
/etc/init.d/slimserver stop
/etc/init.d/slimserver start

These also need to be run as root or superuser.

Sorry,

Using LinuxMint (and loving it for a newbie).

The last post worked perfectly, just what I needed.

Now to do some experimenting.

Many thanks for all the posts. You bailed out a newbie (again).
