    Starting XAMP for linux on startup

    Hi,

    I am running the Linux version of xampp which is called lampp and I need it so that it starts when I turn my computer on instead of having to open up a terminal and typing sudo /opt/lampp/start lampp each time. I have an Eee PC and I am running the default Xandros OS in advanced mode.

    The article at Making scripts run at boot time with Debian should help ou out.

    If you look at the edugeek wiki on the eeepc - there is a bit about inserting a script to mount a network share during startup.

    It might be a reasonable place to insert your script.

    I know in Ubuntu you can go to Sessions and add a new start-up app. For instance I added the command pidgin so my IM starts up automatically.

    Don't know if it is similar in Xandros - haven't used it much.

    Same difference really, sessions is just a GUI to the init.d and rc.d libraries
