I have a small Windows XP Embedded appliance that I want to restore a g4l
image to automatically during boot. I created a bootable USB memory stick with
g4l on it. I have used this to boot the device via USB and successfully
created an image of a partition using ntfsclone. I have also been able to
restore this partition by starting g4l and going to the command line and
running a script that does the restore.
My question is:
Is there a simple way to automate this process, so that the script is run
automatically? I can append the "run" argument during boot, but the problem
with this is that g4l dialog messages still load and block the user interface
and confuse end users. Is there a simple way I can alter the g4l environment
so that it does not load these dialog messages, but instead just first loads
linux into the ramdisk as usual and then runs a specific script?

Well, I've been thinking about this for some time, but had never gotten around
to doing it.
Have done two new updates, that modify the rcS file so that it doesn't do the
dialogs if there is a run line in the kernel.
I disabled the dialogs for the displays and the bkey selection, but did leave
the one were it checks for the nic connection.
I did test this under virtual box run.
With added run="top;reboot" it skips the dialogs, then shows top, and on
exiting top it reboots.
Thanks, that's fantastic :)
