       systemd-rc-local-generator - Compatibility generator for starting
       /etc/rc.local during boot

SYNOPSIS         top


DESCRIPTION         top

       systemd-rc-local-generator is a generator that checks whether
       /etc/rc.local exists and is executable, and if it is pulls the
       rc-local.service unit into the boot process. This unit is responsible
       for running this script during late boot. Note that the script will
       be run with slightly different semantics than the original System V
       version, which was run "last" in the boot process, which is a concept
       that does not translate to systemd. The script is run after, but in parallel with most other regular system

       Support for /etc/rc.local is provided for compatibility with specific
       System V systems only. However, it is strongly recommended to avoid
       making use of this script today, and instead provide proper unit
       files with appropriate dependencies for any scripts to run during the
       boot process.

       systemd-rc-local-generator implements systemd.generator(7).
