rc.local script for mldonkey on RH

hello world,

Iīve installed mldonkey some days ago and I want to run it on my RH 8.0 router and access it via my browser. Therefore I wrote in my rc.local:

#start mldonkey
cd /shares/mldonkey-distrib-2.5-4/

But at startup there comes the line:

Options correctly saved
Core started
Disabling output to console, to enable: stdout true

after this the startup "hangs". So I donīt get to the login screen and that stuff.

1.)I didnīt find where to enable thist "stdout true"

2.) I donīt know if this would bring me to the position of starting my router correctly.

3.) Is there a certain script (phrase) for the rc.local file, in order to use mldonkey as a "daemon"?

thanks for you advices

I start mlnet with "mlnet -daemon 1> /dev/null". Hope this helps.

(I've also noticed that mlnet creates a lot of network connections / traffic, that's why I don't start it at boot time)
