Lesson 13. Startup Sequence > Startup Scripts and Startup Items

Startup Scripts and Startup Items

After launchd executes successfully, it runs the /etc/rc script to perform basic system initialization tasks. These initialization tasks include a file-system consistency check (fsck) and starting a process called SystemStarter, which launches the startup items.

Startup items are processes that run during the last phase of the startup sequence to prepare a Mac OS X system for normal operation. Startup items consist of programs, including customizable shell scripts, which perform tasks such as starting additional system daemons.
