I've read the answers to this and similar questions already, but so far none had worked for me.
On my Ubuntu 11.10 (oneiric) system, all the files in
/etc/rc0.d/ are links. I put my script (called *shutdown_script*) in the
/etc/init.d/ directory and created two symbolic links to it, one in
/etc/rc0.d/ and the other in
/etc/rc6.d, both with the name *K99shutdown_script*. The script is not being run at shutdown, which is what I want. The script is just to test if I could run a script at shutdown; I supply the code in shutdown_script below:
#!/bin/sh # # Tests script to run at shutdown. # Script creates a fil and writes to it. # # Usage: ./shutdown-script touch $HOME/shutdown.log echo "Shutting down at `date` ..." >> $HOME/shutdown.log
As you can see, it just adds a file to the home folder showing the current date and time.
Please could you tell me what I may be doing wrong, and more importantly, how to get a script to run at shutdown.
