Auto run a script on boot up

Hi 

I want to run a script when board boot up completed. this is a macchanger script.

I am using the imx6sx board and compiling the core-image-base image for filesystem. I read similar post on the community but i want to make sure on my board i do not have /etc/rc.local and /etc/inittab files.

 

Thanks in advance,

Nikhil

You can place your script into /etc/init.d

root@imx8qmmek:/etc/init.d# cat test.sh
#!/bin/sh
echo test > /file.txt
root@imx8qmmek:/etc/init.d# ls -l test.sh
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 22 May 25 18:50 test.sh
root@imx8qmmek:/etc/init.d#

and add it into exact runlevel

root@imx8qmmek:/etc/init.d# runlevel
N 3
root@imx8qmmek:/etc/init.d# cd /etc/rc3.d/
root@imx8qmmek:/etc/rc3.d# ln -s ../init.d/test.sh S50test.sh
root@imx8qmmek:/etc/rc3.d#
