How to automatically start tor at startup using rc.d slackware 14.1


Good day all,

My apologies if this post has been answered before. I have tried seraching the internet for most of today and could not come right. I would like to start the above mentioned program automatically at boot. I am aware that I "think" i would need to add a bash start up script?

I am somewhat familiar with scrips and scripting but felt it would be safer to get some advise from more of the wiser members or even a point in the right direction.

Look forward to your feedback. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Marios

Installing tor from slackbuilds.org will drop a startup script into /etc/rc.d. Just make this executable and tor will start when you startup your machine.

Hi there

Thanks for your feedback. It does appear executable, unless I am missing something?

Code:
root@darkstar:/etc/rc.d# ls -l rc.tor 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2403 Nov 12 21:52 rc.tor*
I will need to investigate further. Thanks for your help.
