Carl was kind enough to let me try the headless setup. It works with out any problems.
I am using Ubuntu 8.04 and the machine has the latest version of RB installed. There are two files to add to your existing rb101 directory. rb101headless.im vwlinux86
To start from a terminal cd rb101 ./vwlinux86 rb101headless.im
To start without "X" you will need to modify rc.local , here is what mine looks like #!/bin/sh -e # # rc.local # # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel. # Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other # value on error. # # In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution # bits. # # By default this script does nothing.
cd /home/rb/rb101 ./vwlinux86 rb101headless.im &
Now when the machine boots, RB is automatically started. If you are running "X" (gnome or something) RB will be running before the login screen appears.
