I have placed my script in /sbin/init.d/ directory
but It doesn't start when I reboot system.
Maybe I have to register it somewhere?
Thanks

Hi

  You must edit /etc/inittab and insert a line that
will call this script whenever the system reboot.

 Dont forget to include this line as "once" , in order to
 run the script only once when system reboots.

  See man inittab

bira, this is not the usual way to start scripts at boottime.

You need a symlink from /etc/rc2.d (for example) to the script in /sbin/init.d.
PLease refer to /sbin/init.d/README (or sometimes /sbin/init.d/skeleton) for details.

kako, which UNIX?
