SME Server Centos Red Hat speedup disable unneeded services sound pcmcia cpuspeed

Problem: The default installation setup some unneeded services like pcmcia or sound or cpuspeed


  1. log into your server as root
  2. run
    /sbin/chkconfig --list 
    to see active services
  3. run
    /sbin/chkconfig --level 2345 pcmcia off 
    to disable pcmcia cause a server does not have pcmcia
  4. edit the /etc/modprobe.conf and switch off sound-modules with
    alias "name-module" off
  5. run after reboot
    to control the disabled sound modules if they are not seen they are not active
  6. NOW you have reduced memory load and processes at cpu can speed up your CPU and save energy (at my Epia 533Mhz may be 3Watts at hour)
