cgroups? whazzat?  I've not noted its having docs to explain its 
potential advantages.

Thats the general idea.  So I've killed the two process's it is, and 
added a shebanged script chmodded +x, to the .trinity/Autostart to run 
it from there with a "~/bin/mailwatcher &" as the second line. I ran it 
and its working from there. And didn't return its [###] pid, a dead 
silent launch, So that should be started after I've logged in at reboot 
time. Theoreticly, not reboot tested yet. I should move another mount 
share startup to there also and will if this works. Gradually cleaning 
out rc.local. I did get spamassassin to run, it was disabled by 
systemctl.

How would I go about disabling n-m with systemctl?

Thanks Reco
