You see, I am running a shoutcast server currently, how do I, when the computer boots up.
Automaticly tell it to load up two consoles (rxvt)

With..
./root/sc_trans_040/sc_trans_linux

(and then another console)
/usr/local/shoutcast/sc_serv

(And also, if it wouldn't be too much trouble, would there be a way to automaticly put them in my tray?)

i haven't tried start-items yet ... it sounds like a very useful app

you could write a script (i think with Puppy 1.0.4, you can right click on a rox window and click New Script) ... something like:

#!/bin/sh
rxvt -e /root/sc_trans_040/sc_trans_linux &
rxvt -e /usr/local/shoutcast/sc_serv &

and run the script from /etc/profile, probably put the line just before exec xwin, like this:

/root/shoutcast/run-shoutcast
exec xwin

if you called the script run-shoutcast and put it in /root/shoutcast

if you run Icewm, you can have a tray icon for rxvt if you put this line in /root/.icewm/winoptions:

rxvt.tray: 1

but there will be a tray icon for ALL rxvt windows

you could make a symlink or 2 to rxvt, so rxvt runs with a different name

for example, you could drag rxvt from /usr/local/bin/ with the middle mouse button to /root/shoutcast/ and click Link ... rename the link to shoutcast1 ... if you like, you can make another link, and rename it shoutcast2

then your run-shoutcast script could be:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
/root/shoutcast/shoutcast1 -iconic -sl 32000 \
  -e /root/sc_trans_040/sc_trans_linux &
/root/shoutcast/shoutcast2 -iconic -sl 32000 \
  -e /usr/local/shoutcast/sc_serv &


and you could put this in .icewm/winoptions:

shoutcast1.icon: eyes24
shoutcast1.tray: Minimized
shoutcast1.workspace: 3

shoutcast2.icon: fishy24
shoutcast2.tray: Minimized
shoutcast2.workspace: 3

(as an example ... you can pick better icons)

set up this way, the 2 shoutcast rxvt windows should start running automatically on boot, minimized, in workspace 4, with tray icons (one a fish and the other icon eyes), and there will be no button on the task bar when it's minimized

(-iconic starts rxvt minimized, -sl 32000 saves 32000 lines in the rxvt window that you can scroll through)

Well.. I tried that auto-start manager thing.

I "think" it runs, but whenever it loads it just exists back out again.

(I used the same technique as I did with Dream Seeker (a few posts back.))

Do you mean, put this post in the Wiki somewhere, and add an entry in the Wiki index pointing to it? Confused

You got it flash - but the index entry is not required (though indexing is also worth considering) - that is automated - you will see an index at the top of the wiki

- so worth doing a hunt around there . . .

Using a wiki (and Puppy is developing one of the best) is useful - it is concentrated info
