I'm trying to stabilize an lmce1004 system which I just installed.

With every bootup I get a flood of Media Plug-in scripts that are running and overloading the system.

I want to stabilize the boot up sequence by disabling these scripts first. Later on, I can add them as needed.
I tried to disable some of services by doing:

Code: [Select]
update-rc.d -f mediatomb remove
update-rc.d -f update-media remove
update-rc.d -f asterisk remove

Asus P5GD2-X, Intel i915P/G, Pentium 4 3.2 GHz, 2.5GB, nvidia Geforce 8800, Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1850
