well the cd / and such were what was done in the past, I am not sure why that as well as why everything in the root (maybe for convenience). Basically these little box's are connected via serial device to a data collection device and uses the perl script to interpret the data and gflashplayer to show it live.
As for the starting, gflashplayer is a command line script as far as I can tell, it's the adobe flash player standalone, but it works w/o a web browser, from a terminal, a simple;
/gflashplayer /main.swf loads the entire monitor with the application. I am not sure if that means it is or not a command line app or not, but I have tried loading it using the .xinitrc as well as the bootloader and neither start it up.
I will tackle the perl script next, but I can run the flashapp w/o perl running, it will just return 0 for data. But again, on dsl, I click run command, type /glfashplayer /main.swf (which I assume runs as dsl) and it starts fine.
I am not a 'bash scripter' yet, so not sure if there is something else on the lines I must put, but as I said, 'run command' type it works, so I typed just that in both the above files and neither starts on boot.
Tnx for all the help already.
