    i managed to see to it that the scripts can run during boot time
    but i have a small problem i have a specific script that has to run after the complete booting took place
    how to impose this restriction to ensure that that specific script runs only after the complete booting process completes (end of booting process)

    Add it not to the boot level but to the system's default/desired run level. See man rc-update.
