Autostart - System
If you need a program or script to run every time you boot up your computer... and you need it to load up before your window manager (KDE/gnome), add your command(s) to the end of this file:
This file is a nice one to add to your Kate session.
For example, here is what I am running with my boot.local file:
perl HoTTProxy.pl &
perl HoTTProxy_Admin.pl &
Just to be safe, always add an ampersand (&) to the end of each line. I suspect that without the "&", the system might stop at each command until you hit CTRL+C. It works with the & signs, so I'm leaving them in. :p~
The hwinfo & line is only being executed because in openSUSE 10.3 Alpha 5, the OS refuses to recognize your ROM drives after a reboot... you either have to run hwinfo as root one time, or you have to run the YaST Hardware Information utility. After that the ROMs all work fine.
