Regarding stackexchange post how to get shell scripts to run at startup on Yosemite
The offering here is interesting but all I want to do is set the ip address of one of the ethernet interfaces, en0 with ifconfig. I don't want to launch a deamon.
the command to run is just:
ifconfig en0 inet 192.168.1.23 netmask 255.255.255.0
Of course the interface drivers have to be launched and the interfaces available for configuration. This has to be run by root, other wise it has to be prefaced with sudo, which has to have the credentials provided.
I have the root account activated on this system and am comfortable with and know most of the hazards.
But I don't want to do this manually every time the machine is booted or restarted.
Perhaps someone from Apple has a reference to a patch or info on why the network preference operations for manual configuration of interfaces will not set them on mine.
I have been buying and using Macs since the late 1990's. This is one of only two out of nearly a dozen Macs I have owned that is not newly purchased from a reputable dealer.
Apache server will also not launch with the web sharing option.
Perhaps the machine with the installation is too old? It is
