i would like to write a startup script to unmask irq and after searching I see people suggesting to place it in the" rc.local" file but I am unable to find this file in Suse 9.0. If Suse does not have this file where should it be written???
I believe rc.local may just be referring to /etc/rc.d/boot.local (or /etc/init.d/boot.local). Basically if you put a line in that file it will run that line as root during the boot up process. Assuming the command you want to do doesn't require stuff from run level 5 to be loaded you should be good to go. Otherwise it gets a little bit more complicated, but its not too bad.
I was poking around in this directory. There is supposed to be a functions script here also that I can't find. The path is /etc/rc.d/init.d/ Try that level as root. I'm not in front of my computer so I can't look right now.
