Start Python Script ????

Kernel Version 3.3.8

I have

python /mnt/sda1/arduino/www/Christmas/server.py

exit 0

I have it in the /etc/rc.local

It does not start :(

if i run it from putty it works :)

What manual should i be reading

Read up on shell scripts.

Off hand, it looks like you need a hash-bang on the first line to tell it what script processor to use. Also, make sure the file is executable, use the chmod command to change it if needed…

Could you post your whole rc.local file?
Does your python code return immediately ?

If not, I would recommend something like

(python /mnt/sda1/arduino/wifiMonitor/wifiMonitor.py)&
