Notes on RPizeBox Display

I’ve got a nice scrolling script and had to hack pylms to get it to cope with accents.

This meant uninstalling the pylms module and referencing it instead with

from pylms.server import Server # to talk to LMS server
from pylms.player import Player # to talk to LMS player

That meant I could hack away at the code and it would still work.

I kept trying to find a way to intialise the display on boot.  I had little success.  I even made a start/stop script at /etc/init.d/lms-display in the hope it would get the display restarting on boot, but no dice.  In the end I found that

@reboot root /etc/init.d/lms-display start

in crontab did the job.
