This came from a forum member named Fred. Not sure where the best place is to post this.

In your documentation you don't explain very well how to start automatically TwonkyMedia server on Linux. It should be good to add this note.

I tried on Debian 4 and 5 also on ubuntu 8.04 and more for a default installation and it works :

Put the script on /etc/init.d/
and create theses symbolic links :

For Ubuntu :

sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/ /etc/rc2.d/S99mediaserver
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/ /etc/rc6.d/K99mediaserver
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/ /etc/rc0.d/K99mediaserver

For Debian (in root)

ln -s /etc/init.d/ /etc/rc2.d/S99mediaserver
ln -s /etc/init.d/ /etc/rc6.d/K99mediaserver
ln -s /etc/init.d/ /etc/rc0.d/K99mediaserver
