Newbie needs script help

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I'm running mandrake 10.1 and I am trying to run a script when the system boots up and then another script when the system shutsdown. The scripts basically setup my wireless pci card using the acx100 drivers and I would like for my system to sort this out without me having to type './start_net' or './stop_net' all the time. Is there a simple way to do this? Sorry if this is a really dumb question.

 

Cheers

Lee

Use this as a template and place it in /etc/init.d Then use the services menu in the mandrake control center to run the script at runlevel 2, 3 , 4 and 5

#!/sbin/runscript
#
# start stop script
# /etc/init.d/custom-init-script

depend() {
       need net
}

checkconfigstart() {
       if [ ! -e "/path/to/startscript.sh" ]; then
               eerror "You need a script to run first"
               eerror "make sure that you chmod +x the .sh"
               return 1
       fi
}

checkconfigstop() {
       if [ ! -e "/path/to/startscript.sh" ]; then
               eerror "You need a script to run first"
               eerror "make sure that you chmod +x the .sh"
               return 1
       fi
}

start() {
       checkconfigstart || return 1
       ebegin "put what your script does here IE: loading wireless card"
       /path/to/startscript.sh
       eend $?
}

stop() {
       checkconfigstop || return 1
       ebegin "put what your script does here IE: stoping wireless card"
       /path/to/stopscript.sh
       eend $?
}
