Autostart BRU Server on SuSE and openSuSE

How to get BRU Server to Startup on Boot with SUSE & openSUSE


BRU Server does not start automatically on boot even though I told it to start automatically when I installed BRU Server.


When you request BRU Server to start automatically upon install, it applies the entries to the /etc/rc.local file.  However, SUSE and openSUSE do not use the rc.local file for customer boot entries like other Linux distributions.


Enter the commands in the /etc/init.d/boot.local file instead of the rc.local file.
