This trick achieves two things:
- It avoids that a rc.local.service file is generated by the sysv-generator
- It avoids that the rc.local.service is started (as a LSB service),
since we want this to be done by the native service.
afaics, /lib/systemd/system/rc-local.service always exists, the
rc-local generator only does the symlink into the
Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
