scripts


Hi... When I start my computer I allways have to do two things:
turn on my wirelessled
connect to my wireless network

Are there a way to make a script to do this automatic?
Some of the commands requires root.. The commands are shown below

[anden@dhcppc1 ~]$ su -
Password:
[root@dhcppc1 ~]# modprobe acerhk
[root@dhcppc1 ~]# echo 1 > /proc/driver/acerhk/wirelessled
[root@dhcppc1 ~]#

And then I open Network manager to connect to the wireless network

Pretty much every distro will have a rc.local (or equivalent)
script that is run as the last script before runlevel 3(4,5).

In Slackware it's /etc/rc.d/rc.local
(SuSE has a boot.local, I think),
others may vary ...

Just put your commands in there.


Cheers,
Tink

It should be in /etc (ie. /etc/rc.local).

Just put the 2 lines below at the end of your /etc/rc.local and you should be fine:

modprobe acerhk &
echo 1 > /proc/driver/acerhk/wirelessled
