If you want to build a custom runlevel for linrad there's a few things to
eliminate some of the other processes using cpu time.
I would suggest runlevel 2, as 6 is usually used for reboot. RedHat &
derivatives don't use runlevels 2 and 4 for anything IIRC. If you are
using linux for linrad only, you can make 2 the default runlevel.
In Mandrake put your startup scrips (batch files) in /etc/rc.d/init.d .
Probably one script for svgalibhelper, one for mixer settings, then cd to
/etc/rc.d/rc2.d and add links to ../init.d/script_name_here.
Rename all the links that aren't going to be used (network, xinetd, ftpd
etc.) Links have a specific naming scheme S or K(NN)name_of_service where
the S means you want to start that service and K means you want to kill
it. The numbers are the order the scripts are executed in (S00xyz before
S01qrs). You can look in rc0.d to see what order to stop the services.
You can also add a user 'linrad' with the shell set as
/linrad_directory/linrad and linrad will start automatically when you
If I don't make much sense or you need more help, just ask. For those who
will have a computer dedicated to linrad, you should be able to start it
up, login as linrad and start listening,,,, no typing commands to set the
mixer, svgalib, etc.
