[mythtv-users] [OT] rc.local not running

The rc.local script runs (I added an "echo `date rc.local`
>/home/mythtv/startup" along with the "export MYKERNEL=`uname -r`".  The
file get run but you do not get the benefit.  You just cannot set an
environemnt variable in rc.local!

Just a thought - is your rc.local in /etc or is it under /etc/rc[1-6].d?
If it's the latter perhaps you've modified the wrong one - maybe edited
the file in rc3.d file instead of rc5.d?

Just a thought.
