This document lists the majority of services available for any distribution of Linux. The list includes a description of each service's purpose, and a comment regarding whether it is a required service.


The number of available services in any Linux distribution can be a little overwhelming for even the most experienced of users. This download lists most of the Linux services that may be installed, although you will likely not need many in the list. Each service is accompanied by an explanation of what it does, and of whether it is required to run your Linux installation. After examining the comments, you should be able to tell whether a particular service is something you need or desire in your system configuration.

Not every available service in a Linux distribution is absolutely necessary. In fact, many services are not necessary at all, except in specific circumstances. What is the most unusual or atypical Linux service you have installed? Why?
