Where is script that extracts mydata.tgz?
« on: August 07, 2011, 03:43:46 PM »
TC`s init file has almost no code in it, where is the real work being done?

It seems that it must be inside the kernel?

Hi SunBurnt
Look in  /etc/init.d/tc-config  and  tc-functions.

IIRC /init > /sbin/init > /etc/inittab (sysinit:/etc/init.d/rcS) > /etc/init.d/tc-config

Have fun :)

And  /etc/init.d/rcS  is a link that points to  /etc/init.d/tc-config

/sbin/init is a link pointing to BusyBox, so then BusyBox runs /etc/init.d/rcS ?

Very good guys, many thanks for the important info!

Hi SunBurnt
Init  is a function provided by busybox, it reads  /etc/inittab  to find out where the start up script is.

Yep... And the first line of inittab calls /etc/init.d/rcS , I`ve looked at inittab files before.
I still don`t understand how it does what it`s doing, but I do see what`s being done.

Thanks Rich and hiro... Terry
