[Suse linux 10.1]boot.local help


Hey there

I know i have been posting before, about this but never really got the answer so i'll try again (yes sorry)

So I wonna make a game server startup on boot, so i need to write the script in boot.local (in /etc/init.d/boot.local). Okay so the server is located in my home folder hlds/hlds_l/hlds_run so what do i need to write in the boot.local script..?

Another thing, when do the boot.local script run? does it run after you logged the user in, or just after the other things in the boot proccess?

Hope someone can help

There is no need to use boot.local. Just put a symlink in /etc/init.d/rcX.d, where X is your runlevel. In default Suse installations it's 5 If you don't know what it is, run:
Code:
cat /etc/inittab |grep initdefault
Then (for example to make the server start at runlevel 5), run:
Code:
ln -s /path/to/hlds/hlds_l/hlds_run /etc/init.d/rc5.d/starthlds
Of course you can create a script and put it in /etc/init.d/rcX.d to start/stop the server on system startup/shutdown

You have to use the absolute path to the executable. Sice it run from home dir, use:
Code:
ln -s /home/username/hlds/hlds_l/hlds_run /etc/init.d/rc5.d/starthlds
