So here is the context. I have a Debian Squeeze (solely command-line) installed as a guest in VirtualBox. I installed MySQL, but decided to disable it on startup. So i found out that I can use
update-rc.d -f mysql remove to do so.
This I did before finding this: Recommended way to disable a service in Debian. But in any case I lack the knowledge to fully understand this Q&A. My point is that my problem is maybe that I'm using the
update-rc.d command; you tell me!
Anyway, this works fine so far, as well as launching the service using the
/etc/init.d/mysql start command when I need it. The problem I encounter is that when I issue the
halt command, this service eventually leads to an error. I took a screenshot, but because I don't have enough reputation points (yet!), I cannot post the image; here is the link to it: http://imgur.com/Trpf8.
Could someone explain to me what is the problem? As well as point me to means to solve it?
Thanks a lot for your time.
