Make sure it's not commented out in rc

# Run rc.devfs if readable to customize devfs
#
if [ -r /etc/rc.devfs ]; then
sh /etc/rc.devfs
fi

# Do traditional (but rather obsolete) rc.local file if it exists.  If you
# use this file and want to make it programmatic, source /etc/defaults/rc.conf
# in /etc/rc.local and add your custom variables to /etc/rc.conf, as
# shown below.  Please do not put local extensions into /etc/rc itself.
# Use /etc/rc.local
#
#  rc.local 
#   if [ -r /etc/defaults/rc.conf ]; then
#   . /etc/defaults/rc.conf
#   source_rc_confs
#   elif [ -r /etc/rc.conf ]; then
#   . /etc/rc.conf
#   fi
#
#   ... additional startup conditionals ...
#  rc.local 
#
if [ -r /etc/rc.local ]; then
echo -n 'starting local daemons:'
sh /etc/rc.local
echo '.'
fi

Question from a neophyte... Why isn't rc.local being read?

2000-08-21 Thread Gordon Zeigler

I've added startup commands to /etc/rc.local on my 3.4 Stable machine.

/usr/local/etc/webmin/start # Start webmin
/usr/local/sbin/sshd# Start open ssh
/etc/init.d/apachectl start # Start apache web server

Yet, these are not starting at reboot...

What am I missing? Probably something obvious, but it escapes me...

Gordon,

This sort of question is better suited to
[EMAIL PROTECTED] than [EMAIL PROTECTED]  In the
future, please ask there first.

rc.local is deprecated.  Drop a shell script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d

==ml

The short answer

 I've added startup commands to /etc/rc.local on my 3.4 Stable machine.
 
 /usr/local/etc/webmin/start # Start webmin
 /usr/local/sbin/sshd# Start open ssh
 /etc/init.d/apachectl start # Start apache web server
 
 Yet, these are not starting at reboot...

Not really.  Some of us prefer to have commands to start things in one
nice list in /etc/rc.local, rather than loads of separate shell scripts
in /usr/local/etc/rc.d.  There's no reason I can see for rc.local not to
get read at boot time.  I'd recommend the original poster compare his
other /etc/rc* files with those in /usr/src/etc to make sure there has
been no local modification to remove the code which calls rc.local.
