I'm configuring my Ubuntu 10.10 box and one of the things that I add to my: /etc/rc.local is a command to start my updater.

But, I saw that this process is not getting started up. While checking the dmesg I observe erros, and I need a hand to find why this is happening:

$ dmesg |grep -i noip
[ 1486.329369] noip2[1432]: segfault at 65382538 ip 0013ecc4 sp bf85c044 error 4 in[110000+157000]


  • I can start this same ShellScript that start noip2 by hand and all works
  • The command to start the noip2 is quite simple:
  • /home/user/dev/noip-2.1.9-1/noip2 -c

Thanks in advance for any help!

Try to write an init script for it in /etc/init.d
