Allround init.d script, for everyday use
« on: September 24, 2014, 09:57:04 AM »
Hi all here.

On my journey, through the piCore universe, i was told, that best way to start a daemon, was via an init.d script.
I have been playing, with some small, yet very cool / usefull programs, for my DIY PlayBox.

I have made a "Allround" init script, which i really would like some comments about (Sure there are much room for improvements  8))
OPTION i would like, is :
Start (exec) as user TC

Anyway, i attached some pictures - my playBox, with LCD and IR remote

Regards... Jesper.
