Debian rc.local Equivalent

Taken from

In many distributions you can add commands to run certain programs at the end of the boot process after all system services have been started into the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file, however there is no such file in a Debian system. Here is the way to accomplish the same thing the debian way:

Create a file named local in /etc/init.d/, for example:

# Add all the scripts to run after system startup
/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start

Make the file executable. And then do the following, to create the necessary entries in /etc/rc*.d/

root@ramhome:/etc/init.d# update-rc.d local defaults 80

You should be seeing something like this:

Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/local ...
/etc/rc0.d/K80local -> ../init.d/local
/etc/rc1.d/K80local -> ../init.d/local
/etc/rc6.d/K80local -> ../init.d/local
/etc/rc2.d/S80local -> ../init.d/local
/etc/rc3.d/S80local -> ../init.d/local
/etc/rc4.d/S80local -> ../init.d/local
/etc/rc5.d/S80local -> ../init.d/local

To run Wolf ET, you need to enable OSS sound for this game, by putting the following into your /etc/init.d/local

echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
