Question Run Level Script does not run ?


I am trying to figure how to set start up scripts by run level. I have followed the steps below and it does not run.


added Script in /etc/init.d/dirwite (script works -> tested outside of this)

created soft link to rc3d ( 3 is my run level)

Reboot into run level 3.

and NO DICE

What am I missing ?

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Seems like it should work. Are you sure that you are booting to runlevel 3? Also, have you tried to add something like
Code:
touch /root/test
to the script, so that you can see if it is invoked?

Thanks for the reply. Yes it is in run level 3. I checked by the runlevel command to be sure.

The script is similar to what you typed. I was just trying to learn the process.

Script used to test-->

Quote:
#! /bin/bash

ls /home/ -lR >> /home/joe/Current_Directory
Now I am really confused.......


Any other input out there ?

I tried this on two systems (Both Debian Testing) with the same result...

Just to re-iterate this: how did you check you're in init 3?

also validated at /etc/inittab.
