What does this script command mean?
I am a noob. Have been trying to get an automatic wireless connection on Ubuntu 8.04. Have tried the HowTo's on the ubuntu forum. I have been able to manually connect to the internet. But couldn t get an automatic connection on boot.
Following instructions on the manual connection howto, I edited the /etc/rc.local and added the commands I used to get a manual connection. I rebooted, but no connection.
I noticed that the first line of /etc/rc.local is :
#!/bin/sh -e . I don't know what that is, but it didn't work for me. I did use chmod to give permissions
I was familiar with #!/bin/bash, so I commented out the other, and used what I was familiar with. And it worked.
So what is #!/bin/sh -e and why didn't it work for me?
