music on console "moc" autostart with fluxbox


Since moc is a music server, and mocp is the client to play music files.

I want to play my music collection with fluxbox window manager, so I've tried add this to ~/.fluxbox/startup file
Code:
#!/bin/sh
...
mocp -S &  # start moc server
mocp -p & # start music player
...
exec fluxbox
but nothing yet!

Anyone know how to perform this task?

I think this should be
Code:
mocp -S
without background (&) since -S starts the server and exits. Then
Code:
mocp -p
again without background (&) should start playing. I think just mocp without any arguments brings up the ncurses interface.

...also I had to make sure my playlist was populated or "-p" wouldn't play anything.
