Oops, looks like I did mean AccessX. Let me typing hands get away from me.
Anyways, if I have the commands in /etc/rc.d/rc.local then putting them in /etc/rc.local won't help. They are linked files.
I've downloaded the lateset AccessX tarball and have tried editing the AccessX config file. I don't know why the commands aren't being run during bootup. I can run them fine from the command line. I've also tried setting the repeat and delay time with "kbdrate".
Maybe there's an issue with the installation of Mandrake 8.2 on my laptop. I've used rc.local on my Red Hat 7.2 w/out any problems.
So I add a line to rc.local to shutdown httpd and it worked so it must be a bug with AccessX. Maybe in conjuntion with Mandrake? Anyways, I think I'm going to reinstall Red Hat 7.2 on my laptop since I'm also having problems with the APM during reboot. I've been working on these problems for too long now. Too bad, I was beginning to like Mandrake. Maybe I'll install it on my next box. Well, thanks for the help!
I've also had a lot of trouble getting commands in rc.local to execute under Mandrake 8.2. It doesn't seem to make any difference what I put in rc.local, much of the time they don't execute. It happens that kbdrate is one of the commands that I can't get to work in rc.local
I've never had this problem with any other Linux package.
