ensure runlevel boot facility starts after other boot facili

How could I ensure that a runlevel boot facility starts after other boot facility? And how could I test if that works?

If you want to change the order in how certain services are started, you can modify the “# Should-Start:” line found in the scripts found in /etc/init.d (and where needed also adjust the “# Should-Stop:” line).

When you have changed that reinsert the daemon(s) for which you have made modifications by running “chkconfig [deamon name] off” followed by “chkconfig [deamon name] on”. This sets the daemon start and stop links for each runlevel in correct order.
You can see the order of the links for each runlevel in /etc/init/d/rcX.d , where X is the runlevel number. Service start links start with S and stop links start with K where the number specifies the order in which that link should be called.

Hope that helps,
Willem
