in RedHat linux 9, how can i configure a startup file in /etc/rc.local


Helo Sirs,

I would like to know how can i add a startup application in /etc/rc.local file in order to run that application first when i login as a user or root? If i switch on the computer in the morning this application should run after booting the system.I use RedHat 9.

for example openoffice writer or calc file to run as a startup or any other applications.

can anyone help me pls.

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

I've split your three posts into separate threads to keep
the flow of discussions more obvious and "clean".



Cheers,
Tink
