Start commands on boot

Remember how bitchy the start of programs during boot time using the file rc.local with its pitfalls? A good and simple trick is to use cron jobs.

Start as user crontab -e to run the programm in userland. If you need root rights start as root crontab -e.

Then you can edit the crontab file.

@reboot /path/to/your/prog1 option1 option2
@reboot /path/to/your/prog2 option3 option4
@reboot /usr/bin/screen -d -m /path/to/your/prog3 option5 option6

With screen -r you can see the output of prog3. :-)
