find, edit and save "startup" file


Hello,

running Linux RH 7.3

I need to add some lines to the start up file:

setserial /dev/ttyS4 uart 16550A port 0x24## irq 11 baud_base 460800 spd_normal skip_test
setserial /dev/ttyS5 uart 16550A port 0x24## irq 11 baud_base 460800 spd_normal skip_test
setserial /dev/ttyS6 uart 16550A port 0x24## irq 11 baud_base 460800 spd_normal skip_test
setserial /dev/ttyS7 uart 16550A port 0x24## irq 11 baud_base 460800 spd_normal skip_test

First ... what is the name of the startup file? I searched for a file "startup" with no success. Besides, due to my inexperience I want to make sure I edit the right file the right way first.

Second ... where is it?

Third ... where is the ideal place to insert those lines?

Fourth ... I'm assuming I save the file in the same format, shut down and restart?

Thanks in advance.
C.

Usually your startup scripts are located in your /etc/rc.d directory.. I do believe you could put something like that in your rc.local file, try searching for that.

Try putting them in "/etc/rc.d/rc.local" This file is designed for user modifications, so it shouldn't cause any conflicts with other scripts. If your working on a stock install this file should be empty, so put your lines anywhere. Then:

"shutdown -r now" will reboot your machine. "reboot" may also be a link to this same command.

As for the "startup" file, there are many, including 1 for each run level, and to be exact, they are actually startup "folders" which contain scripts to be run when you enter (and leave) each run level. They are called "rc*.d" where "*" is the number of the run level.

(he he, you're too fast for me tricky!)
