Running rtorrent in screen automatically on startup


I'm running Fedora 7 and I'm wondering whether there is any easy way running rtorrent in background (in screen, so I can recall it any time with 'screen -r') from startup, by adding a line in rc.local file or something.


I tried with screen /usr/bin/rtorrent& and that didn't do anything.


Any ideas?


Thanks in advance.

Do you need it to run in full text mode or in, like twm with xterm?

what you could do is write a shell script and add it to the end of /etc/init.d/rc.local
and/or use chkconfig to make it startup

here are some links :
