Starting Services on Boot with ntsysv on CentOS/RHEL/Fedora

ntsysv allows you to easily specify the scripts/services you want to automatically start on boot. For CentOS and RHEL users, you can easily install ntsysv using yum. This should work on Fedora too, as they are in the same boat as RHEL and CentOS. ntsysv is not available on Debian/Ubuntu natively, so this method of starting services won’t work.

yum install ntsysv

After you have installed it, run the ntsysv command.

ntsysv

You’ll be presented with a window that has a combination of red, blue, and gray.

Use the up/down arrow to navigate the list. Use the spacebar to check/uncheck a service. Use your tab to navigate to ‘Ok’ and ‘Cancel’. This part is mostly self explanatory.
