How did that happen? - Automation, Daemons and other Linux magic.

Presentation suggestion

Lots of things start to happen "auto-magically" in a Linux system. This presentation discusses the different ways to make things happen without user intervention. We also look at some guidelines on how to choose the method of automation when you want to add something.

    Some possible sub-topics in this presentation

  • init, init.d, runlevels
  • inittab
  • startx, xinitrc
  • .bashrc
  • .preferences
  • cron, anacron
  • more...


A topic that I would like to have presented is <strong>explaining wireless</strong>.

I have set up wireless ethernet by guess and by golly, but I would like to know the "proper" way of doing it.
