Automatic startup of ventrilo/rtorrent
How do I do this?

I have read and I know I have to use screen, but how do I make it start automatically?

Also if it matters I use 'cd /etc/ventrilo && ./ventrilo_srv -d' to start ventrilo, it doesn't like me calling it from outside its directory.

Can't you just put the start commandline in /etc/rc.local?

On my FC6 system at least, this starts the applicable application each time the PC starts.

If you want the app to start each time you start your XWindows, in KDE at least, you can simply create a desktop shortcut to its executable, and then put that shortcut in ~/.kde/Autostart - which should start it fine each time your XWindows starts.

Thank for the reply, but I think Arch is a bit different, it doesn't do rc.local, it has an rc.conf and I tried putting commands into rc.d then writing them into rc.conf but it didn't work.

And I don't use a gui.
