Autostart Program under Linux

#autostart #linux

/etc中所有的启动运行脚本简要说明: init inittab rc0 rc1 rc2 rc3 rc5 rc6 rcS init.d init 系统启动超级进程 inittab 进程启动配置文件 rc0 - rc6 各启动级别的启动脚本 rcS 单用户模式启动脚本 init.d 启动脚本存放目录

rc0.d: 停机模式,(千万不要把initdefault设置为0 ) rc1.d: 单用户模式 rc2.d: 多用户模式,但是没有NFS支持。 rc3.d: 网络多用户文本模式,为完整的多用户模式,是标准的运行级。 rc4.d:一般不用,在一些特殊情况下可以用它来做一些事情。 rc5.d: 网络多用户图形模式,也就是X11,进到X Window系统了。 rc6.d:为重启,运行init 6机器就会重启。

上面所有文件夹下,以S开头的表示要启动, 以K开头的表示不启动

Autostart on Boot

ANSWER: hello, I’m hoping (with your help ) I can get a program to run from boot time in debian. Basically I want the system to boot and launch straight into the program without going into x or asking for a passwords etc. Can anyone advise how I do this? Thanks

REPLY: This sounds like two distinct requests.** **If you don’t want to start X when the system boots, go into your /etc/inittab and change the default runlevel to 3. To start a program automatically, **1. go into /etc/init.d and create a script that starts the program, **create a script like /etc/init.d/Smyserver


And change run mode:
_chmod 755 /etc/init.d/Smyserver_


  1. then make a link in /etc/rc3.d that points to that script. **

    ln -s /etc/init.d/_Smyserver Smyserver

Follow the conventions used by other contents of those folders, and check the man pages for specific guidance.
