    Default inadyn as a daemon. openSUSE 12.1 x86_64

    I managed to install the deb package inadyn with the help of alien and zypper, and the inadyn runs when called from command line and reads it's config file just fine, but I would like to add it as a daemon and I just don't know where to look for help.
    the system is text only server install with zypper update already ran and stable as it is.
    I don't have any man pages on it and I really never setup a daemon by hand that I can recall...
    any help would be appreciated.

    Why deb package?

    Inadyn is a script that you can just download from DynDns site and place
    it anywhere in your path. 40 KB in size.

    I have a line in fstab:
    @reboot /home/vahis/bin/inadyn

    That's all I need and it runs fine.

    I guess it was a bad idea to use alien and zypper in this instance, but I will follow your example of amending fstab.
    thank you.

    Sorry, I wrote fstab.

    Of course it is crontab.
