Re: Start script at boot time ?



Orvo, Dan,

At boot up, the script /etc/rc.d/rc.local is the last script to be executed, so anything you put in here will be run immediately the computer has booted up. Concerning firewalls, the network needs to be up first and there are both ipchains or the newer iptables for doing this. See the chkconfig man page for setting serivces are different run levels, firewalls should not need to be put into rc.local. The files iptables and ipchains in /etc/sysconfig contain the firewall information, there is also the gui tool firewall-config for setting up iptables.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Chris

I am intresting about that too.
I would like to start some process to start them by command
# at now +Xmin -f XYprocess.sh after system has nearly up.
Then boot would be faster.

Anybody done so ?
