Subject: making a script run at debian startup

> When you want some script to run at debian startup for all users you put
> its command line with path and parameters inside of /etc/rc.d/rc.local and
> make /etc/rc.d/rc.local executable once with chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.local.
> On a reboot that script will run for anyone logging onto the system from

> path and script name and parameters is already executable and so long as
> what you add to it is correct all you need do is to reboot the system.
> In that case though .bashrc has to run for that specific user in order for
> what you put into .bashrc to run.  You don't put .bashrc inside of
> /etc/rc.d/rc..local those are intended to do separate kinds of work with
> different granularity of services.
