rc.local systemd

Hello guys,

What is the right way to implement rc.local in systemd? Though rc.local still works (I have only tried Fedora16), I think the right way is the systemd implementation.

Though the fedora doc here says that rc.local is not packaged, it does not suggest the right way.

Please point me to the right place if there is a documentation on this available already.

Hi syg00,

Is rc.local (which I think is sysVinit way) is still the right way? Or if it can be performed through the new systemd how?

/etc/rc.local and /etc/rc.local.shutdown can be run at startup and shutdown by enabling rc-local.service and rc-local-shutdown.service.
