The final release of Ubuntu 9.10 is due out today but there is minor item that seems to have disappeared from the System>Administration menu, in the release candidate at least: Services. While some reader may put me right, I can’t seem to find it anywhere else. Luckily, there is a solution in the form of the GNOME Boot-Up Manager or BUM as it is known sometimes. It is always handy to have a graphical means of restarting services and BUM suffices for the purpose. Restarting Apache from the command line is all well and good but the GUI approach has its place too.
