      !!FORUM DOWNTIME!!   01/16/18

      On 2018-01-27 the forums will be going down at around 1100 GMT0 for up-to 5 hours to allow for hardware configuration changes on the system that hosts these forums as well as various updates to patch recently publicised CPU vulnerabilities. Apologies for the inconvenience that this will cause.  If you would like to keep up-to-date on the progress of the work, join our IRC channel (http://webchat.esper.net/?nick=&channels=oc) or our Discord ( https://discord.gg/0hVukoQ2KYifZFCA ).

Boot OpenOS without GPU/Screen?

Question

I wrote a program that basically needs to read/write a file and trigger one of 9 note blocks, this file is managed externally.

Because of the 9 note blocks I am running out of component space. The perfect solution to this would be to boot my program without a screen (it doesn't need a screen to function).

I tried booting OpenOS without a GPU/Screen, but it seems to freeze at some point and OpenOS will not run any programs I've configured to autorun.

 

Preferably I'd like a minimal setup, which only loads what I need and runs without a GPU/Screen, I have the following requires in my program:

require("serialization")
require("component")
require("filesystem")
require("shell")
require("event")

Which I guess is basically the complete OpenOS suite...

 

So simple question: how to boot without a GPU/Screen and run my program?

I've noticed the autorun system is kind of finicky, another way (that may work better) is to use the RC system and make a daemon / service program. There's a few examples on the forums here.

Seems to work, but documentation is terrible... Spent 30 minutes figuring out what to place in rc.cfg :P

Thank you :)
