No init.d directory in Slackware 9.1 install
I just realised that there ins no init.d directory in my slack 9.1 installation. I realised it when during my speedtouch installation the script complained when it tried to copy a file there.

Iknow it is supposed to be at /etc and /etc/rc.d. What does it contain anyway and is it okay to create it manually?

Slackware doesn't use an init.d script.

In Slack you have /etc/rc.d. If the script really complains you can create init.d as a symlink to rc.d.

Thanks. I know the command to create the link goes like this:

ln -s /etc/rc.d /etc/rc.d/init.d

Question is where should i be before typing the above command?

in front of the keyboard ;)

just be sure you are root and you're ok

ps. and i think the command you want is like this:
ln -s /etc/rc.d /etc/init.d
