Run a script during Arch Linux boot process 1394/04/09

We will use a systemd service to run our script during boot process of Arch Linux. Create a new file in "/etc/systemd/system" (e.g. myscript.service) and add the following contents:

Description=My script



put your script in "/usr/bin/my-script" and make sure to make it executable. and then enable the service.

$ sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/my-script
$ sudo systemctl enable myscript.service

This example assumes you want your script to start up when the target multi-user is launched.
