Start Jnos on bootup

To start Jnos when booting, you have to adjust something in the /etc/inittab.
First the line “#2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty2” must be switched off , a simple # can be used.

1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1
#2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty2
3:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty3
4:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty4
5:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty5
6:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty6

We use tty2 for Jnos, so it must be disabled.
Now we can add the line below to the /etc/inittab

#Start Jnos on BOOT en herstart het wanneer het kapot gaat.
JNOS:2345:respawn:/home/pd2lt/jnos/startnos </dev/tty2>/dev/tty2 2>&1

Start file for Jnos

cd /home/pd2lt/jnos
rm -f /home/pd2lt/jnos/spool/mqueue/*.lck 2> /dev/null
rm -f /home/pd2lt/jnos/jnos/spool/mail/*.lck 2> /dev/null
sleep 1
TZ='Europe/Amsterdam'; export TZ
export TERM=linux
exec ./jnos -C -g2 -u3 -f nos.cfg -i

Now Jnos is automatically started with every reboot of the system.
