Non Debian users are probably surprised when they see this message: /etc/rc.d/rc.local: No such file or directory . It happened to me and I was very disoriented.
But don't worry, here is a quick fix for this:
With your favorite text editor create the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local and add something like:
# Add all the scripts to run after system startup
then chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.local
then update-rc.d -f rc.local start 99 2 3 4 5
Now you should have it working as on other distros.
