So I put a command in the rc.local to run on boot on an Ubuntu server. Didn’t start. What the hell. perms OK. script runs OK. Frickin’ Systemd Dammit. I think I am done with systemd now. Just too intrusive. First – monolithic and HUGE. Second I want text log files. And I don’t want to have to google how to make rc.local run with a damn config file. WTF?
