I have some lines appended to /etc/init.d/boot.local on a OpenSuse 11.1 server. They are some scripts I want run at boot. Who do these get execute as? In particular, I have one script that needs elevated privileges, as it binds ports 80 and 443. On command line, I use sudo, but for scripting I'm not sure if I have to include sudo in the bool.local file, or not.


All init scripts without code intervention run as the root user.
