Is rc.conf a "regular" script?

My question is if I can launch a program form there? I use "no-ip" because my ip changes every time I boot. I would like to not have to run the program every time I boot nor to put it in my .bashrc script. Or should I put it in /etc/profile?

Sounds like you should make a startup script for /etc/rc.d and then just add it to the daemons array.

or just put it in /etc/rc.local.

putting it in rc.conf is a really really bad idea, because it's loaded many many many times on boot. once for each daemon, it's also loaded in rc.sysinit. on the average system, that's at least 10 times.

then it's loaded for each daemon on shutdown, so that's another 8 or so.

My rc.local is empty. Should I just add a: exec no-ip to that file then?

Yes, you could do that

Or add /path/to/no-ip


All you got to do, is tell the story right...

there's no need for exec, just do as michiel said.

rc.local is a regular script, run at the end of the bootup sequence.
