    Issues with rc.sysinit.local

    Based on very useful help here previously I setup rc.sysinit.local to automatically start mfs_ftp when I reboot the tivo. It has worked great, except that I recently added to the file so that it would start the screensaver also. When I did this mfs_ftp no longer automatically starts. Does anyone know what I could have done wrong?


    I actually also left a post on the email list regarding this but I think it was a little too cryptic on hindsight.

    thanks,
    Justin

    Why not post your new config?

    I dont' have access to my config at the moment, but it is pretty much:

    # MFS FTP DAEMON
    /var/mfs_ftp/mfs_ftp.tcl &

    # SCREENSAVER
    /hack/tivowebplus/component/screensave -t 60 >/dev/null 2>&1 &

    I am not sure what the exact screensave address is, but you get the idea. The screensaver is starting on reboot but not mfs.

    Perhaps installing in the specified directory may help?
    /var/hack/bin/screensave -t 60 >/dev/null 2>&1 &
    instead of
    /hack/tivowebplus/component/screensave?

    thanks for the thoughts. Someone on the email list worked it out. It was that I needed a blank line in-between the two.

    I seem to have the same problem again. The local file will not startup mfs_ftp on a reboot. I have checked the file is executable and the screensave module works on it, but mfs. If I manually startup mfs through putty it works (and with the same command)

    My local has the following in it:

    # MFS FTP DAEMON
    /var/mfs_ftp/mfs_ftp.tcl &

    # SCREENSAVE DAEMON
    /hack/TivoWebPlus/modules/screensave -t 60 >/dev/null 2>&1 &

    Any thoughts?
    thanks,
    Justin

    Try swapping the commands around, or adding a sleep command between them.

    Is there anything else you have done recently that would break it?

    I swapped the commands and that seems to have worked. Not sure why it stopped working - I have only performed the std updates to the image through the commands. Albeit that its a mystery your suggestion has worked. thanks,

    Once again it doesn't seem to start mfs_ftp. It did for a day but I had some forced reboots (power turned off) and it is not working, so I start the ftp through putty. I am open to suggestions.....
