rc.local support on Arch Linux with systemd

Published: 13-01-2014 | Author: Remy van Elst | Text only version of this article


❗ This post is over seven years old. It may no longer be up to date. Opinions may have changed.

Arch Linux uses systemd. Therefore, init functions like rc.local are not supported anymore. This systemd service allows you to have support for /etc/rc.local.

Consider sponsoring me on Github. It means the world to me if you show your appreciation and you'll help pay the server costs.

Edit /usr/lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service:

[Unit]
Description=/etc/rc.local compatibility

[Service]
Type=oneshot
ExecStart=/etc/rc.local
RemainAfterExit=yes

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

Enable it:

systemctl enable rc-local.service
