I have a ramdisk mounted by fstab, and it works pretty well. It also works pretty well with samba, sharing it to some windows PCs. When I start the PC, it doesn't require any intervention for things to be running smoothly.

The downside to a ramdisk, though, is the volatility. It's absolutely fine by me, but I'd like somewhat of a structure there. My idea was to put a load of mkdirs in rc.local.

For whatever reason, it isn't working. I've read about adding a sleep at the top of the script, but this seems a bit barbaric, and I only ever saw people using that when they were doing something with networking in rc.local, whereas mine is only dealing with filesystems.

I've read that rc.local is executed asynchronously, but I have also read that fstab will always run before it, so I don't know why what I'm trying isn't working.

Here are some of the lines in my current rc.local:

su asday -c mkdir /media/ramdisk/4x6
su asday -c mkdir /media/ramdisk/4x6/done
su asday -c mkdir /media/ramdisk/ID\ Cards

Thank you for your time
