5.2.2 On Unix
You may start MathLM manually at any time using the command-line options listed in Section 5.3. However, it is typical to configure MathLM in one of two ways to ensure that it starts automatically when the system is rebooted.
- Create a cron entry to start MathLM at a specified time or interval, such as once a day or once a week. If a mathlm process is already running, the new process exits.
- Add lines similar to the following to a startup script, such as /etc/rc.d/init.d on Linux systems.
if [ -f /usr/local/Wolfram/MathLM/mathlm];
then /usr/local/Wolfram/MathLM/mathlm -logfile file;
