$ ls -l /etc/rc.local
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 34 Jun  1 11:20 /etc/rc.local
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2012-06-01 17:27:34 EDT
The proper path is /etc/rc.d/rc.local.
Comment 3 redhat 2012-06-02 16:47:48 EDT
You're right. Though it appears that 'sudo -u <user> <command>' doesn't work ..

Will have to investigate more. Closing this as NOTABUG. Thanks.
