    Gentoo bootup message

    I have just started using Gentoo, Squeezecenter is set to start automatically at the default runlevel, and this message always comes up in the boot dialog for Squeezecenter

    "Starting Squeezecenter....
    Found custom OS support file for unix"

    I'm just curious to know what this means, haven't come across this message before, google gives no clues. Squeezecenter works perfectly (except I can't compile musepack-tools, but I think it is a Gentoo ebuild problem).

    SC 7.3 offers a mechanism for 3rd parties to control some of SC's behaviour by providing an OS specific file. We use this in SC to load different default values for Windows, OSX and various Linux flavours.

    I don't know the Gentoo build. But I guess that it's maintainer is using this feature to tweak SC to better fit in with Gentoo's behaviour. There would be a Slim/Utils/OS/Custom.pm file in your SC installation folder.

    Gentoo bootup message

    Yes, that's right (the ebuild is mine).

    Is there any way to prevent the printout of that line? It would seem to
    be unnecessary (and perhaps a development debugging hangover) as it's
    always going to be printed. I could add a patch to the Gentoo build to
    hide the message, but I try not to patch the SC source if possible (and
    removing the need for patching was the big advantage of this custom OS
    support, after all).

    Thanks,
    Stuart

    I removed it. Will be quieter with tomorrow's build.
