dweeb: Thanks for the tips! I hated having to start Netscape and load the configuration page just to get to a root prompt. (Guess I gotta brush up on the "basics"!)
Oh, and to anyone interested: There is a small "caveat" to the NFS server setup I described above. I set up an NFS server on one of my Windows PCs to serve MP3 files to the iOpener and discovered this "glitch": It seems that I have to explicitly do a "umount" on the share before I shut down. If I just shut off the iOpener, the next time I boot, it won't connect to the share. If I reset the NFS server on the Windows side, it will mount, but that's an extra step I don't want to have to do. I may end up just installing a web server on the Windows box and create a playlist based on URLs instead. I know that this definatly works. Besides, my play lists won't change that much anyway.
1. When shutting down, I assume that you just turn off the iOpener as the file system is read-only (unlike a full UNIX distro on a hard disk.) Is this true?
2. I'm trying to trace through the boot-up process (quite challenging because I really don't know as much about Linux as I thought I did!) The Midori docs give a brief outline of the boot process, but I am stuck. I know that a bunch of "stuff" happens at boot, then the "profile" is loaded, then other "stuff" happens (X starts, etc.) I would like to better control which programs start up in X, but can't find the proper file to tweak.
3. Related to #2 above, given the read-only nature of the file system, where would I find more information about how the files in /tmp/config are saved when you save them through the web configuration interface? Are the files in /tmp/config the only "savable" files? I would like to tweak some files (like hosts) but can't figure it out.
Sorry about all the questions, but I think this distro is VERY COOL, and when I get interested in something, I just have to learn all I can about it!
