Autoexec.bat in Linux?


I want to run the statment each time I reboot the machine,

mount - t smbfs -o ........................

It works fine but on reboot it just reset so I want to put in the file just like autoexec.bat in the win.

Sorry for giving reference of windows as trying to switch to Linux from windows.

Simply dump the commands into a script in /usr/bin, with root execute permission and then put a call that executes it in /etc/rc.local like
/usr/bin/mountmysmbshareplease

#!/bin/sh
#
# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.

Put the command at the end of rc.local

You can mount smb sares from /etc/fstab but I have seen people having problems with that.

You have to be root to be able to edit it. Also, you don't need 'execute' extentions in Linux/Unix. The OS detects what is executable without .exe, .bat, etc.

For single commands, put it in there, but for multiple commands, I create a script that is called. I had a friend at work who was having boot problems, and saw that he had added about 2K lines worth of code to his rc.local.

I have created and file,

/usr/bin/share with my mount command

the file privs are -rw-r--r-- I think I have to change these to give execute privs as well. Correct me if I am wrong.

hahaha
It says that "it seems //sikandar/TEMP is mounted multiple times" so while mounting no check for duplication?
and unmount is not working even I think reboot will remove this.
