Wink "dialog --radiolist" distorted in Ubuntu-10.04 virtual machine


My shell script is running fine when I am login in Virtual Machine(Ubuntu-10.04) but it is distorted when I keep it in /etc/init.d/rc.local for running it in startup.
1. At startup in radiolist it is showing stars are going outside the dialog box when selected
2. Few time if I select other option then the previous selection is still appearing ie showing multiple selection

dialog --backtitle "VM" --radiolist " Advance Configuration Menu" 25 60 10 1 "Network Configuration" on 2 "Restart" off 3 "Shutdown" off 4 "Return to Main Menu" off 5 "Exit" off 2> /tmp/error.err

Any one !!!!!
Thanx in advance

Akshay

I do not know at which point in boot process are you trying to run this script. I believe the script is not getting the right environment.

I would recommend you append this script in /etc/rc.local
