I have a custom powerquicc board which runs linux and would like to auto start an application at boot up. I found several references such as startup - How to Autorun a program using busybox after boot? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
and scripts - How can I make "rc.local" run on startup? - Ask Ubuntu . Please clarify which one to follow?
Besides image for this board was developed using legacy LTIB. I would prefer to manually do the process rather than automating through the framework such as LTIB, yocto or ELDK
