I just need to be told that what I'm doing is OK and not
dangerous/wrong/stupid! I need to set some PATH and JAVA_PATH variables and
then start some servers before login so the machines will boot into a ready
to work state.
I have placed the following at the top of the file "/etc/rc.d/rc.local"
echo "Setting PATH"
echo "Setting JAVA_PATH"
echo "Starting Orion"
The sleep is just so I don't get the output of the last script telling me it
has started in the middle of my login (I've set inittab to start the machine
at run level 3)
Is this the correct way to do this or is there a more proper / correct way?
Thanks for any replies / help!
