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┬ántsysv 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.
