cron and periodic etc. etc.
Just a brief follow-up to yesterday’s post. After I wrote it I was reminded of some advice of Simon’s: don’t add LCFG bells and whistles unnecessarily. Use existing standard mechanisms where you can.
In this case that would mean requiring our components and software which wanted to run at wake-up or sleepy-time (there must be more technical terms for these, but I like these) to drop a wee script of their own into the
/etc/pm/hooks directory. Forget, for instance, all this stuff about a special component running at wake-up time; it’s an attempt to simplify things but it’ll just complicate them instead.
