http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello, I'm having a problem getting a program to run from /etc/init.d/rc.local. I can run my script manually once the system has booted. Here's what I've tried the following without success: 1) creating the script in /etc/init.d and using update-rc.d to create symbolic links to use at boot time 2) add the script name in /etc/rc.local 3) add the script name in /etc/init.d/rc.local I've run these scripts with "- x" to get verbose output and my app seems to get called, however when I do a "ps waux" it's not there. If I understand correctly, the *right* way to do this (HowTos)
