Current runlevel

Figure out the current runlevel of your system.

Surprise, surprise :) You need the following command:

$ runlevel   # command
N 2          # sample output

The previous and current runlevel from that record are output separated by a single space. If there is no previous runlevel in the record, the letter N will be substituted.

So, in my case the current runlevel is 2. It means I can check the startup scripts in the directory /etc/rc2.d.
