    Hmm, I've got no recollection of commenting it out or putting the echo statement in. I've also got a file rc.sysinit.bak dated October 2006 which has no additionals startup commands in it, but also has this line commented out. I'm wondering if I might have taken a backup the very first time I made an edit, and this is it.

    Looking at the stuff I found that starts tivoweb, I'm wondering if I may have run some install script for an early tivoweb, which made these changes.

    Okay, changed the line back and rebooted, and I'm happy to announce that endpad has now started. I'd still welcome any thoughts on why my filesystem is writable at the end of the bootup, or whether there's something I need to change about the way tivoweb is starting (see posts above)

    Thanks for your help so far!!

    p.s. Could I remove the TivoWebPlus file in /etc/init.d and replace it with an entry in sysinit.author? Perhaps if I did, I'd be better commenting out its content, in case something is calling it and wouldn't be happy if it was removed. Also, I have the latest tivoweb2 installed, and was wondering why it wouldn't start, so I guess I'd need to remove this anyway??

    Aha! Found the following:

    Code:
    bash-2.02# cat rc.sysinit.tpm
    #!/bin/sh
    for i in /etc/rcS.d/S[0-9][0-9]*
    do
        # Check if the script is there
        [ ! -f $i ] && continue
        $i start
    done
    
    This gets called near the end of rc.sysinit, and calls the stuff in /etc/rcS.d. Not sure what the copy in /etc/init.d is for though. I'm definitely inclined to get rid of this script now, and do it from sysinit.author - does anyone think that's a bad idea?

    I'm sure that Hackman does something to the files so that you can have the ability to edit from within Tivoweb Hackman module without the need to use Telnet. It may be worth having a read up of the Hackman guide found here http://www.tivohackman.com/

    sysinit.tpm is apparently Tivo Package Manager. A bit of reading on the hackman site throws up that as of November 2005 "if you install the only official version of TWP (although now deprecated) it installs as a tpm package". Guess that's how I originally installed TWP. I'm certainly of a mind to use sysinit.author instead, just to keep things simple.
