Default Continuing a process after disconnection

Hi,

I'm trying to write a shell script that will run in the background and continue to run once I've disconnected from my HMR350.

Normally I'd use nohup or screen it or schedule the script via cron but in the absence of these binaries I'm struggling to have the script continue successfully once I disconnent.

Anyone else managed to get round a similar issue?

Thanks,
Louis

hi

did you try to get started your shell by the startup process ? /etc/init.d

Thanks for your reply.

I tried to put a script in /etc/init.d but since / (and /etc/) is mounted from the flash storage on my box, I've no way of editing to the startup process (unless anyone can correct me?)

I don't know if any .profile/rc scripts are run from /tmp/ as part of the startup process - maybe I'd be able to find a way of editing one of these if there is one?

This is why I went down the line of kicking off a script from a telnet session. So far I've been playing with trapping the sighups from another script, but I've been having mixed results as other binaries are called and forked to bg as part of the original script.

Perhaps the answer is to compile a custom firmware package with the bits & pieces I need included from the start?

Thanks
