Hello,
 
Any comment on this one or should I file it under no-go?
 
thanks, Jonas

Hello,
 
I am giving it another go. I have added a number of tests on the grub config  and the installation status of xbmc-live.
Please review it and let me know if you need anything else or if it is a no-go.
 
https://github.com/downloads/vikjon0/qf-xbmc-addons/script.linux.diskmount-0.0.4.zip
https://github.com/vikjon0/qf-xbmc-addons/tree/master/script.linux.diskmount
 
I would also be thankful if some of you can give a quick test run before a possible release into the official repo.
The intended users will not make ideal testers as you can imagine.
 
If it is approved I have to break it out into a separate repository?
 
best regards, Jonas

Hi,

after a discussion we have decided to remove the script from the repo du to te possibility of it runing on non live systems and causing havoc in there.

please consider adding some checks in the script that would determine if its running on Live system and maybe we can add it back. maybe cptspiff, TheUni, and topfs2 could add more.

Sorry about that,
Zeljko

It is not that bad, I dont do anything with grub that xbmc-live postinst doesn't do.
I agree an advanced setting would be better than a grub parameter.
