The wide world of scripts run at startup, big question here


Hi! I'm newish to Linux and really getting to like it and I realllly want to know it better. And one thing thats been a little mysterious is what exactly gets run in what order when linux starts up as far as scripts (that i can edit, say) go.
I know some of the simple ones like ~/.bashrc and some others, but I was curious if anyone knew of a site or reference that kinda has the tree of options.

Thanks!

Even broader now

Thanks, great concise site!

The next biggest thing that I'd rather like to understand is how modules work with relation to the kernel. I've had some experience "modprobing" in some modules and having some stuff work but thats mostly following instructions. Does anyone know any place that covers the subject well?

Thanks!
