I have this script that I want to be run on startup:
#chkconfig: 5 80 20
#description: sets default screen brightness
smartdimmer -s 10
I copied this file into /etc/rc.d/init.d and made it executable, then ran
chkconfig --add defbrt
and the symbolic link appeared in /etc/rc.d/rc5.d.
When I execute the script manually from the command line, the screen brightness goes down to the right level, but it just doesn't happen on startup.
I have tried doing a simple script like
and manually copying it into the correct folder, but that doesn't work either.
What am I doing wrong? When I did this on Debian (with update-rc.d, but essentially the same result) it worked fine.
