Boot sequence (rc.)
A small reminder regarding the Run Levels in Debian.
|0||Halt sequence||both (OS + user)|
|1||Single-user mode (for special administration)||OS|
also know as "Basic Multiuser"
Local network (loopback 127.0.0.1) is up & all interfaces are registered.
.. But there is NO NETWORK access and services (no NFS, Samba, etc.)
|3||Full Multiuser with networking text mode||OS|
|4||Full Multiuser with networking text mode||user|
|5||Full Multiuser with networking graphical mode||both (OS + user)|
Then each script as both an execution state and a priority.
- S => Start script
- K => Kill script
Scripts are executed in order: from the lower to the highest number = from 00 to 99.
