Slackware10.2 bootup hangs (local.d)

After adding a line in my /etc/rc.d/(local.d / rc.local)

/usr/local/bin/php /path/to/myphpfile.php

Slackware10.2 bootup stops while trying to run this command and nothing seems to yield further. I've tried Ctrl-C , Ctrl-D but nothing seems to work

Can I give some parameter at the command line of my bootup disk so that (local.d/rc.local) is not executed during bootup and I can remove that line after bootup.

Kindly help

Slackware does not have a /local.d directory.

What you need is to add your lines in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Boot with cd1 to get to a cli, using the lines it tells you (i.e. root=/dev/hda ...)

Plus, did you know there is a Slackware specific forum here at LQ?

And Welcome to Slackware!
