Setting up syndaemon to start at boot


Hello all,

A relative newbie here with what I hope is a basic question. I've searched everywhere and I guess I'm just missing the plot.

I'm running Suse 10.1 and would like to start syndaemon at boot so I don't have to manually start it in terminal each time I boot up. I've searched all over and I guess I just don't seem to see how to add this process to start at boot since it is not already listed in Yast.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!!!

You can create a symlink to the command you use to start that daemon in the default runlevel directory. In Suse the default runlevel is 5, so you can run:
Code:
ln -s /path/to/start/command/syndaemon /etc/rc5.d/S99syndaemon

Thanks bathory, after some playing around I got it to work, had to put it in the /etc/init.d/rc5.d directory as well as in /etc/rc.d/rc5.d directory and now it appears to work on boot up. Eventually I think I'll need to create a shell script for this to be handled appropriately, but until then this works for now. Thanks again for answering my post.
