Hiyas, a package I comaintain (pm-utils) uses a lockfile. Because it may happen that the computer crashes when the program is used, the lockfile may be there already when no instance of pm-utils is running. Therefore the lockfile should be deleted on startup. Do I need to write an initscript for this? Which is imho not 100% correct, because this "service" should never be deactivated. Is there a directory , where one could drop a file for this? The only one I can think of would be /etc/sysconfig/modules, where ever .modules file is executed at startup. The original feature request to split up rc.sysinit in a rc.sysinit.d structure is more than five years old (which would be a good solution here), so I doubt that filing a feature request will help here. But maybe someone knows a better solution that the two I can think of. Regards, Till
