How to automatically launch nefu on Mac OS X

  1. Create system StartupItems folder
    Create a system StartupItems folder by either adding one to your system's "Library" folder, or use the following command:
    mkdir -p /Library/StartupItems

  2. Download and unpack the nefu StartupItem
    Download and unstuff the StartupItem by either either double clicking on it, or use the following command:
    tar -xzf nefu-StartupItem-20031013.tar.gz

  3. Modify the nefu StartupItem script
    Edit the "nefu" script in the "nefu" folder to conform to the local instalation.

  4. Install the nefu StartupItem
    Move the nefu StartupItem folder in to the system StartupItems folder, or use the following command:
    mv nefu /Library/StartupItems

nefu should now start when the Mac is powered up. It could also be manualy started, stopped, or restarted with the following commands:
  • sudo /Library/StartupItems/nefu/nefu start
  • sudo /Library/StartupItems/nefu/nefu stop
  • sudo /Library/StartupItems/nefu/nefu restart
