Description Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 4 start script for LCDd.
Supports


You'll need to copy the following file to /etc/init.d/LCDd then from within the /etc/init.d directory run:

chmod 755 LCDd

After you've done that you can verify that its working buy running:

/etc/init.d/LCDd restart

You should see it fail to stop (assuming its not running already) and then succeed in starting.

If all that goes as planned the last step is to set it up to start at boot. To do this we use the trusty chkconfig command as follows:

chkconfig --add LCDd
chkconfig LCDd on

Thats it.

You can double check that its there and ready to run if you'd like by running:

chkconfig --list | less

And scrolling through all the startup scripts.

That really should be it. Once the VFD is working all you need to do is go into setup>setup>appearance and configure Myth to use the LCD display. Again Issac, I bow my head. :)

Hope this helps.
