I am in a good mood this morning (which is to change abruptly, when I goto work)
Here is my way of automating CLI mode software. I will demo GAH and Audiogalaxy.
First we start the software up at boot time. I use a script to load it a specific way here. I tell /etc/inittab to load it and dump the output to ttys 10,11,12
# Audiogalaxy Startup
# Genome@Home Client software
Next we do the actual scripts.
