Startup Management

There is some nominal support in kcontrol to support startup management.

I don't know what all is available in this area for KDE 3.5.x, but I'd like to see more.

As Slackers tend to be rather anal about such GUI apps <roll eyes>, very little in that way ever apeared in Slackware.

There is some kind of Lilo manager hook in kcontrol. There is something called qgrubeditor that supports GRUB 1. That tool now only supports QT4 (what's new). I don't see qgrubeditor in svn so here is a vote to support that.

Then there are the startup services and daemons. I don't know if any KDE GUI tool exists for that. If there I would appreciate a link so I can consider how that tool might be adapted to Slackware. I think the Ubuntu folks have something like that, but of course, GTK.

This all would be something for 3.5.13 of course.
