Big THANKS to Marc Field!!!
- Just wanted to say thanks to Marc for putting together such a
fantastic guide to get the Slimserver software running on the Linkstation.
I've played around a little with Linux before, but I'm far from being
anywhere near proficient. Your guide was really a great help (a few
days ago, I didn't even know one could do this stuff with the LS).
I came across one little issue, though. Initially, the startup script
wasn't working. After checking the /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/ directory, I found
another process that was using S95 already. So, I renamed
S95slimserver to S96slimserver and everything works great now.

was "another process using S95 already" could not have been the
reason it was not working before. The number does nothing else
than make sure the scripts get executed in the right order when
the file names are sorted alphabetically.
I have three scripts with names starting with S95: S95ppc_uartd,
S95slimserver and S95svnd. I've listed them alphabetically so
that's also going to be the order they will be executed when
switching to runlevel 2. Judging from the PIDs of the processes
involved that's indeed what happened (the PIDs are in ascending
root 246 0.0 0.0 1428 40 ? S 10:49
root 257 2.8 8.3 34568 5232 ? S 10:50 18:18
root 261 0.0 0.9 4420 620 ? S 10:50
0:00 /usr/local/bin/svnserve -d -r /mnt/svn
My slimserver starts without problems on boot using this setup.
So indeed, thanks Marc.
