    Ubuntu mini remix

    Hi all,


    I've taken to using UMR for some admin tasks at work. ive figured out how to use UCK to customise it and get my scripts in it that I need.


    i want to retain the headless environment (dont need a gui) and have customised as such.


    The problem im having is with the following script.
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    clear
    set +v
    listdisk=`fdisk -l /dev/sda |grep /dev/ |grep -v Disk |cut -d " " -f1`
    for i in $listdisk; do
    	echo "working on partition: " $i
    	val=`echo $i |grep sda |cut -d "/" -f3`
    	mount /dev/$val /media/$val
    
    
    	if [ ! -f /media/$val/boot.ini ];
    	then
    		echo "file not found"
    	else
    		echo "file found"
    		rm /media/$val/boot.ini
    		cp /media/$val/Temp/boot.ini.pe /media/$val/boot.ini
    		break
    	fi
    
    
    wait
    done
    I need this script to run automatically, but I also need feedback from it to let me know it has functioned correctly. Ive tried to use cron, init.d, /etc/profile, /etc/profile.d/ and a few other things. There are two main problems, either I get no feedback, or it doesnt appear to be authenticated and can't mount. When I run the script manually it works perfectly.


    Basically what I need is this. once my custom UMR build logs in (which it does automatically as user ubuntu) and at the $ prompt, I need the script to execute, and display the "echo" sections.


    Any thoughts?

    If this is near impossible to do, how do I go about setting up a command shortcut to run the above script. Say if I were to type FIXBOOTINI at the $ prompt and it were to run the above script?
