comment How to run scripts on start up?
you are right, that worked. my script says ifconfig > /some/shared_vm/dir. this is on a VM. i am trying to fetch the IP address of the VM when the system starts and print it to a file in a directory shared with the host. i think the problem is that when the VM first starts, this directory is not mounted yet, that's why. so i need to run the script maybe 5 sec after the system starts. any idea how to do that?

i did sudo crontab -e and then added @reboot /my/script to it. when i just run /my/script, it works fine
