rc.local problem.

I can't get things I put in rc.local to work! The script is gettin run at startup but nothing I seem to put in it works. (I'm on MDK 9.1)

I need to run the following commands:

setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none
modproble serial
irxevent /home/.lircrc

When I just add these to the bottom of rc.local none of them seemed to get executed at startup.

Can anyone help??


Be gentle, I'm a
