Question Trigger wakeonlan upon xbmc (Ubuntu) resume


Hi,

I am running xbmc live 9.11 (r26018) (which I guess is based on Ubuntu Mobile edition) installed and running on ASRock HTPC with all media shared from another pc that is running Windows Home Server (WHS). On week days I am usually out of town so I have configured my WHS to auto standby after certain period of inactivity. My HTPC as well goes into standby and not complete power off.

Now, I would like to have my HTPC send a wakeonlan command to WHS upon resume. I have added following command in /etc/rc.local which is not helping:
Code:
wakeonlan <WHS MAC Address>
If I manually type this command in a shell then my WHS does respond and wake up but no response via entry in /etc/rc.local file. I am not much familiar with linux environment and still in the learning stages. I would appreciate if you could tell me what I am doing wrong here and how can I fix it?

Thanks and Regards,

try adding the full path to your wakeonlan, that might do the trick.

Thanks Sharaz.

Could you please also tell me the full path?

Also, can you confirm if /etc/rc.local file is reloaded upon system resume?
