View Full Version : Running MusicMagic Mixer on startup

I'm using MusicMagic Mixer 1.1.3.2 (registered) with SlimServer 6.0 on
Linux (Mandrake 9.2). Its a great combination, many thanks to everyone
who worked on the integration.

I currently launch MusicMagic manually in a VNC session without
problems, but would prefer automatic startup and not to have the
additional overhead of VNC/X/KDE running all of the time on this
particular server. Is it possible to run MusicMagic on startup in the
background, preferrably just running the MusicMagic services API without
the rest of the MusicMagic interface?

Best regards,


Andrew

According to the Predixis guys, this is coming in a future version.

I use this script as a work around myself:

#!/bin/sh

# start MusicMagic against xvfb. so we don't need to run a full X server. Connect via RDC

cd $HOME/bin/Linux
export DISPLAY=0:1

Xvfb :1 -screen 0 1024x768x16 &

sleep 3

# krfb allows me to vnc into a xvfb session.
krfb --display 127.0.0.1:1 &

sleep 3

../MusicMagicMixer &
