rc.sysinit.author and Endpad

Postby davesh » Sun Nov 10, 2013 12:17 pm


I'm trying to resurrect my Tivo with the bits'n'bobs it had before the /var/hacks directory emptied itself. I remember using Endpad before and it was great. I've found it again here http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/sh ... p?t=136658. Looking at my rc.sysinit.author file I see the following :

Code: Select all
if [ -f /var/hack/rc.sysinit.author.edit ]; then
. /var/hack/rc.sysinit.author.edit

but I don't speak TCL. I'm guessing this is saying that if a rc.sysinit.author.edit file exists in var hacks then use that. Is that correct ?

If so is it as simple as creating a single line rc.sysinit.author.edit file in /var/hacks containing the line :

Code: Select all
/var/hack/endpad.tcl -s 1 -e 5 -sugqual z -sugeq -auto >> /dev/null &

or some variant ?
