IIRC dos2unix.exe is the little beasty that strips off the nasty DOS bits.Originally posted by Robert S
Two things tend to happen when you do that. One is that the 'executable' flag tends to get reset. You can fix that with "chmod +x /mnt/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit".
The other thing is that DOS-style line-terminations replace the Unix-style ones that sh is expecting. I don't have the solution to hand, but it's such a common on that a few minutes with Google should turn it up. I would think sed would be the tool to use.
When you ftp the file to your TiVo did you make sure you did it in binary mode? Ascii mode will generally cause problems due (I believe) to some flakiness with the tivo ftp prog.Originally posted by Megabyte
Didn't edit the file on my pc. Just moved it to floppy and then to tivo. You can if a file is edited on the pc when you see blue M's in the joe editor, right.
sorry didn't know I posted in this uk forum, I actually replied to the original post since I found it in a search.
