Allright, maybe I can offer some help... (I'm a new subscriber.)

Is it exactly after 10 minutes, or when you log out? Remember it must run
detached from the console!

That seems a little premature... I have made on my own boxes an init-script
that starts rc5 as it boots, in /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc5des.init. This script
is called in the proper runlevel.


# source function library
. /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions

case "$1" in
        echo -n "Starting RC5-des calculator: "
                daemon /usr/bin/rc5des/rc5des &
        touch /var/lock/subsys/rc5des
        echo -n "Shutting down RC5-des calculator: "
        killproc rc5des
        rm -f /var/lock/subsys/rc5des
        echo "Usage: rc5des.init {start|stop}"
        exit 1

exit 0

Do you have something like this, or do you start it manually from a shell?

Good luck,
