Actually, recently, /etc/rc.local was introduced into debian
testing/etch, and it emulates the functionality of slackware's
/etc/rc.d/rc.local script, with the help of /etc/init.d/rc.local.
Having said that, the information Jewd provides is nonsense at best,
and potentially destructive to your system at worst. I have an idea of
what he's trying to describe, and it doesn't make sense to me at
all. I can only imagine what it sounds like to a newby.
I don't know myself how you'd execute something as a particular user
on system startup, since I never needed to do that myself, but I do
know you don't let $HOME/.bashrc and /etc/rc.local have anything to do
with one another.
