     NAME
          systemd-rc-local-generator - Compatibility generator for
          starting /etc/rc.local during boot

     SYNOPSIS
          /lib/systemd/system-generators/systemd-rc-local-generator

     DESCRIPTION
          systemd-rc-local-generator is a generator that checks
          whether /etc/rc.local exists and is executable, and if it is
          pulls the rc-local.service unit into the boot process. This
          unit is responsible for running this script during late
          boot. Note that the script will be run with slightly
          different semantics than the original System V version,
          which was run "last" in the boot process, which is a concept
          that does not translate to systemd. The script is run after
          network.target, but in parallel with most other regular
          system services.

          Support for /etc/rc.local is provided for compatibility with
          specific System V systems only. However, it is strongly
          recommended to avoid making use of this script today, and
          instead provide proper unit files with appropriate
          dependencies for any scripts to run during the boot process.
          Note that the path to the script is set a compile time and
          varies between distributions.

          systemd-rc-local-generator implements systemd.generator(7).
