    help with run levels

    Can someone tell me how to make a service start after X has loaded?

    I have 2 services in /etc/init.d that I installed using

    update-rc.d SERVICE defaults

    problem is they take about 5 seconds each to load and my boot seems to only run one service after another (can this be change to run both at same time?)

    The version of Ubuntu matters here. Newer versions use "upstart", so checking the man page and google for use of that command would be where I would start.

    In the old /etc/init.d/ structure, just find the number that starts X/Windows and make the other links for the services you want to start later have a higher number. On my desktop, that number is 70, but it could be different on yours. 71-99 would be the choices to start after X11. I suspect there is a way to manage this using update-rc.d, but I'd simply make the softlink have the number I wanted.
