PCP / ASH script won't run from bootlocal
« on: October 20, 2017, 06:02:12 AM »
Hello, I'm on issue to obtain the autostart of an ASH script on PiCorePlayer.

this script is working well from the command line,
but no way to obtain the script starting normally from bootlocal
- with / without using sudo
- using / not using the paths

below my bootlocal.sh file  and the script
I don' find any related post, sorry if the point is obviousl  I'm a newbie on such topics 

thanks in advance for your advises

my current bootlocal.sh

Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]
[#!/bin/sh
# put other system startup commands here

/opt/eth0.sh
GREEN="$(echo -e '\033[1;32m')"

echo
echo "${GREEN}Running bootlocal.sh..."
#pCPstart------
/home/tc/www/cgi-bin/do_rebootstuff.sh 2>&1 | tee -a /var/log/pcp_boot.log
#pCPstop------
/usr/local/etc/init.d/lcdproc-server start
/usr/local/etc/init.d/pikeyd start
/usr/local/etc/init.d/slimmer start
python /usr/local/etc/init.d/shutdown-button.py
/bin/ash /usr/local/etc/init.d/squeezelite_led.sh &

and the script  /  to activate 2 leds depending of squeezelite running or not

Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]
#!/bin/ash

# wiringPy mode
LED1=3
LED2=5

# set-up
setup()
{
gpio mode $LED1 out
gpio write $LED1 0
gpio mode $LED2 out
gpio write $LED2 0
}

#loop
loop()
{
squeezelite=$(ps -ef | grep MainPlayer | grep -v "grep" | wc -l)
if [ $squeezelite -eq 0  ]; # If squeezelite isn't playing
then
gpio write $LED1 0
gpio write $LED2 1
else
gpio write $LED1 1
gpio write $LED2 0
fi
sleep 1
}

# main
setup
while true;
do
        loop
done

Hi jeff_69_fr
Code: [Select]
/bin/ash /usr/local/etc/init.d/squeezelite_led.sh & That doesn't look right. It should look like:
Code: [Select]
/usr/local/etc/init.d/squeezelite_led.sh &

Hi Rich,    that doesn't work,  previously tested ko and just redo with the same result  :-[

previous runs was Ko using
- nothing as advised
- Bash and Ash,    as managed with success for python script  (listed just before on the bootlocal.sh file
- the same with full path  as /bin/ash or /bin/bash or /usr/local/bin/bash

thanks for your support !!

Perhaps you need to background your python script?
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hi jeff_69_fr
Here's your problem:
Code: [Select]
969 root     {bootlocal.sh} /bin/sh /opt/bootlocal.shOne of your commands doesn't exit and return control to bootlocal, so your squeezelite_led.sh command never gets executed.

Thanks Tiny Core guys for helping jeff_69_fr out.  :)

hi jeff_69_fr,

Just a little word of warning, as piCorePlayer is not just piCore, sometimes you may be advised to use the "product" forum for support rather than the Tiny Core forums.

regards
Greg

Hi Greg Erskine
Seeing how it wasn't piCorePlayer specific I didn't feel it was out of line, but thanks for passing on the heads up to jeff_69_fr.
