This is similar to how init worked and granted, systemd has replaced it so maybe systemd is an option. Basically, I'd like the roboRIO to behave more like the linux system that it is(n't).
There is a traditional init.d/rc.d folder on the RIO, and it works exactly as you would expect. I was actually quite surprised you tried to use robotCommand instead of this.
