As I'm not a specialist of linux, I surely made wrong things trying to change scripts or entering wrong things at the wrong place. I succeed running Mediatomb via Telnet (Putty) but the few modifications I made in were not successfull. Is there a manual of "how to" with the commands of linux?
    Thanks for your help.
    Regards.
    Your previous post was moderated because of the link in it (Try to stop spammer). Anyhow you must edit your /usr/local/etc/rcS file to start mediatomb automatically. You may have to familiarize yourself with "vi" editor to help with that (google is your friend). Just enter the command you use to start it with putty in that file (rcS) at the end. You may need to specify a sleep command before "sleep 60" to allow the USB to get mounted before you issue the mediatomb commands; so it should look like this:

    sleep 60
    cd <---- to the mediatomb directory
    launch mediatomb with the command use in putty.

    This should work for you. Let me know if you need more help.

    Thanks Snappy,

    Now, with your help, it's working fine.
    Last question, is it possible to have the folder "mediatomb" hidden in HDD1?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Regards.

    Antoine.

    Hiding a file or directory in linux is not always as easy as one would think it is. The hidden file or directory pretty much depends on which file manager is being used. I do not have my PBO currently available to me to try but see if just changing the name of the directory to .mediatomb works for you. I just added a dot (.) at the beginning of the directory name. I can not remember if mediatomb expect the directory to be specifically called mediatomb or not.

    Anyhow I will look into that one when I have a chance but if memory serves the file manager of the PBO display every files whether hidden or not. As far as I know putting a dot(.) as the starting character of a filename or directory is the only way to hide a file from some file manager.

    Cheers !!!
