I run some Cygwin daemons on Win98 boxes. The way I do it is to put the
following shortcut in the Windows Startup folder:
c:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe --rcfile /usr/local/bin/startup.sh -i
Then in startup.sh, I have:
I could be wrong about some of the options/paths. But that's the idea.
Then, whenever Win98 boots, I end up with a minimized DOS shell. I've
found that I need the shell to hang around, or the daemons die off
(hence the --rcfile and -i options to bash).
This works fine, but the problem is that when I shut down the machine, I
have to kill off the DOS shell by hand.
I imagine there must be a better way. Anyone have any suggestions?
