Changed the script like u suggested recliq...

Code: Select all
chmod a+x /conf/S00videoscreensaver
(/conf/S00videoscreensaver forcestart)&



Made the S99user-script disappear from process list...
But still 2 processes for videoscreensaver with different IDs..

Code: Select all
3001 root      3648 S    /bin/sh /conf/videoscreensaver forcestart
3009 root      3712 S    /bin/sh /conf/videoscreensaver forcestart

Just a noobish idea...

I think something in the videoscreensaver file is kicking of the process a second time after its been forced to start by S99user-script...
One of the variables KAD used in there...
So if we could make videoscreensaver sit "somewhere in the background" and check those variables instead of force to start it as a process, maybe that would result in having only one process in the list...

Would it be enough if i take out the "forcestart" command out of S99user-script?

videoscreensaver definetely does not call itself again

you can read through the code if you like
it's actually fairly straight forward

it's an infinite loop,
once started, it never finished, just keeps run over the same set of cmd's

as for removing forcestart, you're welcome to try it
but the way it's supposed to work, if you don't supply any cmd i.e. start,forcestart,restart,stop
then it does nothing, it just exits
