How to have 'at' daemon start automatically on boot


Okay, I figured out that to use 'at', I have to first start the 'at daemon' (atd) by commanding (as root):

/etc/init.d/atd start

But how do I make it so I don't have to do this every time I boot up? Yes, it's simple newbie question time...

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

It should be part of Yast (it was up till 9.1).

You could also do it yourself.
The init script should already be in your init.d directory (probably called atd), if it's there make symlinks to the runlevel you start in. I.e.:

cd /etc/init.d/rc3.d
ln -s ../atd S10atd
ln -s ../atd K11atd

The S10atd start this service during boot, the K11atd kills this service during reboot.

The rc3.d is for runlevel 3, for default GUI logins it should be rc5.d (you could also use both).

If it's not there install it first (it's part of SuSe).

PS: Must all be done as root. Take a look at man init.d for more details.

Hope this helps.

When I start up YAST, where do I go to play around with which daemons get started automatically?

Thanks.

Nevermind, I think I found it under Runlevel Editor!
