    starting LCDd at startup problems..


    Hi,

    i have got hold of the required stuff to make an lcd info panel.

    i can start LCDd through the shell but when i try to start it on startup through rc.local it starts LCDd but then stops, waiting for it to end. how do i get the machine to start LCDd and then keep going before LCDd ends?

    thanks tr_wright1

    It sounds like something is going wrong when it's getting started. Make sure that your rc.local line is calling the program correctly. Also check your logs to make sure that nothing bad is happening when it tries to start.

    I have manged to sort out this problem, i dont know how i missed it after reading man pages 6 times!

    in LCDd.conf there is an option about running in foreground i set it to no
    when starting lcdproc you must give it the -d option
