service command

It would be nice to have a service command/function to be able to start daemons with
service samba start

im little lazy to write entire command line

Re: service command

Ehrm.. no offense, but how the heck is that so much different from typing /etc/rc.d/samba start with TAB completion? Heck, if you're so keen on this, write a little shell script calling /etc/rc.d/$1 with parameter $2, call it "service", and there you have it. Barely a two-liner. smile

Re: service command

miki, u have luck that i'm just _nearly_ as lazy as u are :

write these 2 lines into a file called "service", then copy it to /usr/bin/ and don't forget to chmod +x /usr/bin/service....

#!/bin/sh

exec /etc/rc.d/$1 $2

this will be something like a redhat compatibility script *gg*

nothing,
maybe I have a perfect signature _someday_

Re: service command

i don't think it will be included because it's a think everyone can include by his/herself, and i don't think that arch will have much of those i'm-too-lazy-to-type-some-more-lines scripts smile

but if u have some wishes, just post and someone will write u such a script...
