An important part of preparing an
operating-system declaration is
listing system services and their configuration (see Using the Configuration System). System services are typically daemons launched
when the system boots, or other actions needed at that time—e.g.,
configuring network access. They are managed by GNU dmd
(see Introduction in GNU dmd Manual).
The following sections document the available services, starting with the core services.
|• Base Services:||Essential system services.|
|• Networking Services:||Network setup, SSH daemon, etc.|
|• X Window:||Graphical display.|
