/etc/rc.local is the file which system reads at last moments during its boot process. you should not manually start this file.

how ever, you can run the contents of the file just open the file with editor like

Code: Select all

vi /etc/rc.local

look at the contents if there are scripts running like


you can run these kind of scripts manually at command prompt like this:

Code: Select all
