Config : Linux Mint 17,2 (Ubuntu based, Debian based).

I launch a home-made service at boot. Added with update-rc.d homemadeserviceName defaults

I need to be sure homemadeserviceName runs after all orthers.

How can I do that ?


To start your service at the end, run this command

update-rc.d homemadeserviceName defaults 99

This will add a link inside /etc/rc.d as,


Upstart will start services in the order of their numeric suffix... S0, S1, S2... and finally S99 services.

  • there is also a command to list all service & their level/priority – ArchiT3K Aug 31 '15 at 7:29
