making a command run after boot

Hi guys,

My laptop has a transmeta cpu which has the ability to change frequecny dynamically.

What i would like to do is run this command as soon as the laptop is switched on, (as early as possible)

longrun -s 100 100 "this will allow it to boot quicker"

and then once the laptop has finished loading and im in KDE i would like the command

longrun -s 0 100

to be automatically run

is tihs possible to do guys?

how can i do this?

cheers in advance

You could create two scripts

longrun -s 100 100
longrun -s 0 100
Then link them into your start up... for example
ln -s /usr/local/bin/high /etc/rc5.d/S07high
ln -s /usr/local/bin/low /etc/rc5.d/S98low

I suspect this should meet your needs.
