I've searched the archives of this and several other lists but this
doesn't seem to have come up.
We currently have a Tiger network install image which runs our custom
installer script (written in bash) from /etc/rc.local, outputting to
the console. The windowserver is never started. I'd like to emulate
this behaviour using a Leopard install and am having problems.
on a standard Leopard installer CD, /etc/rc.install /System/Library/
LaunchDaemons/com.apple.install.cd.plist is started by /System/Library/
LaunchDaemons/com.apple.install.cd.plist and should run /etc/rc.local
if it exists. On my image (which started as a clone of the installer
CD) this is happening, but rc.install (and thus rc.local) are running
in the background. Is there any way I can cause it to run in the
foreground and send it's output to the screen? Setting StandardOutPath
to /dev/console in /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
com.apple.install.cd.plist doesn't seem to make any difference.
Any hints as to where to look for more information would be
appreciated. I've scoured the Boot process documentation on Apple's
site but the possibility of running without the window server doesn't
really seem to be covered.
