View Full Version : Stopping AppleTalk w/ Debian

I promise I will figure most of this out on my own, BUT! I am brand new to Debian. (have fooled around with RH) I Just built a system that dual boots Win XP Pro and Debian Sarge. Everything works great. (It was actually pretty EZ) Anyway Debian starts up "apple talk." It even says it may take a while and it does! I don't have an Apple on my net. I assume I don't need this service running and it sure would save some boot time.

Like I said I promise I will RTFM but for now could someone please assist me in finding a way to turn this service off? RH would have used chkconf (I think) but apparently not Debian? Any pointers would be appreciated.

apt-get remove appletalk

That will not remocve configuration files for that

apt-get --purge appletalk

to reconfigure without removing

dpkg-reconfigure appletalk


dpkg-reconfigure appletalk-simple

You most likely just want to remove appletalk altogether,for that

apt-get --purge appletalk

In fedora, the package you would get rid of is netatalk, not appletalk. YMMV

Thanks a million "apt-get --purge netatalk" did the trick. Now it's time for me to do some learning with/about debian.
