View Full Version : How to make Lisa daemon run automatically?

04-23-2004, 04:40 PM
My newbie question: How do I make lisa run automatically upon startup?

I trying to get my Linux box to communicate with my Windows machines. I've had success using LinNeighborhood to detect and mount Windows shares, but ONLY after manually running "lisa". Otherwise, LinNeighborhood complains that the lisa daemon isn't running.

Do I need to manually edit some sort of run level 5 script, or something?

Thanks for any help!

You could try
update-rc.d lisa defaults That will put lisa into the rc. folders for starting up at boot.

sudo rcconf

use space button to turn things on and off at boot up. and tab to exit.

apt-get install rcconf

when in doubt check apt-cache

you dont need to su then sudo. sudo is just a replacement for su so you can do admintasks much quicker.

Do it this way;

sudo su
update-rc.d lisa defaults
/etc/init.d/lisa start

or alternatively you can do this as well:

sudo su
dpkg-reconfigure lisa

Both commands will put the startup scripts for lisa into the runlevel folders, but the second suggestion will also start lisa in one shot.
