OK I take it back, it wasn't egg just my face after all.
mike@/deb40a:~> cat /etc/rc.local
# /deb40a/etc/rc.local just for testing Feb 9 2009
echo "running /deb40a/etc/rc.local " $(date) > /root/rc.local.running
mike@/deb40a:~> ls -l /etc/rc.local
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 137 Feb 14 06:46 /etc/rc.local
after rebooting there is no /root/rc.local.running
root@/deb40a:~> ls /root/rc.local.running
ls: /root/rc.local.running: No such file or directory
root@/deb40a:~> grep -R rc.local /etc/*
only shows the call in /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh that I put there to
call my /root/bin/rc.local and the contents of the above mentioned
/etc/rc.local that I just generated which doesn't get executed.
So my questions to you who have an installed /etc/rc.local are which
package did it come from and how does it get executed?
