Boot time script under user ID
Date: Sun, 06 Mar 2005 21:26:55 -0500
I am trying to start a set of processes on behalf of a non root user at
boot time. I want the scripts to have the PATH, home directory and
permisions of this user, even though this user has not logged in (the
machine is still booting, running boot.local, I think it's not even at
a multi user runlevel. Further, I's like this to be portable to non-Linux
*nixes such as Solaris 10. Is this possible ? Any help is interesting.
