* You'll get an error message at boot time (to avoid it you need to patch all the scripts);
* You are breaking the logical chain stated in debian-policy concerning runlevel configuration.
If the logic of a debian-like system boot up sequence is not very clear and familiar to you, you should not play with symlinks, permissions, etc. In order to avoid messing up your system, Boot-Up Manager will automate all of your configuration in a nice and clean graphical interface.
Boot-Up Manager is a Perl-Gtk2 application to handle runlevels configuration of any debian derivative system. With this program the user will easily start and stop boot-up scripts, without the necessity to handle thru complex links and permissions.
Boot-Up Manager has been developed and tested on Ubuntu, but as it only relies on Perl-Gtk2 libraries, it can be run on any Debian-like system.
BUM is currently in Debian unstable/testing and in all Ubuntu's repositories. These users can just apt-get it.
apt-get install bum
Other users of debian-derivative distro's can just download the .deb package and type, from a terminal:
sudo dpkg -i bum_2.1.8-1_all.deb
Your Boot-Up Manager is placed into System->Administration menu.
Unpack your tarball and build the program:
tar -xvzf bum-2.2.0.tar.gz
Last command must be run with root privileges. Please read the INSTALL file, for configuration options.
