> But what is a 'symlink', and how can I add one?

That's short for "symbolic link", it allows you to create a reference to your script in multiple folders while keeping a single place for the script itself. So you 'cd' into the appropriate '/etc/rc.d/rcx.d' and the issue the command 'ln -s ../init.d/do_install S80nfsd' (you might give the 'do_install' script a better name when copying it into '/etc/init.d').

But that's just an interim solution and based on what I see in the original firmware, I don't have OpenLink. Maybe someone using OpenLink could write a better script using the standard "start|stop|restart" mechanism.

I made all those things, but my NFS-Server is not starting automatically. Somethings seems to be wrong ...
I can only start everything manually.

Hmm. When you copy the script (and not the other tools), you need to adapt the paths inside, otherwise it's unable to find the necessary files. The NFS server script must work by calling it from '/etc/init.d/<scriptname>'.

Maybe I should look into 'ipkg' as mentioned elsewhere and put together an "easy install" package, but then it's probably a good idea to have an OpenLink LinkStation handy.

(wow, this thread has more than 420 views - anybody got some crazy "auto-reload" on?)

(That's "anonuid" above, I don't know why this forum insists on adding a space there.)

There is a forum word length limit. I went ahead and increased it. I hope you noticed the other changes I made to the forum...

Yes - I really like the bigger input box and the pretty urls :-).
