Yes. This is indeed tricky because if you hang your system you have no
chance to go back. That's why this should do only skilled people.

I understand your needs really but it is hard for the pro's to discus real
problems if the threads are floatet with linux beginner themes. The major
drawback, i think so, is that then they will be listless to answer
questions anybody interests.
That's why i think it is better to discus such things on the right place.
If you have some problems with peanut i think the peanut-forum is made for
you and if you have probs with the script from tuum you are invited to
discus this with me on:
>@@ concerning the install script, it is this peanut script called do4me.sh
That's clear now.

No, the runvdr.sh is patched. It's not the original one.

Hmm, this is really simple. At first it declares some variables:
then it defines some functions which can be used direct or indirect. What
means you can call a function like "getall" direct with "./do4me.sh getall
". This will download all needed packages if not done so. therefore it uses
the wget prog.
The menu is made with the dialog package. Therefor you can read the manual.
Dialog is sometimes a little bit hard to understand but it fit the needs.

The same here. That's why i'm using a old PC with P@233 (;-) now at 400MHz)
and with a long linux learning process. I have done really wrong things on
it and i have installed much much times. I'm not skilled in linux and i
have locked my system several times. :-) U're free to do what you want but
i think the harmless way is to use a ir fb. This costs, at least here, some
cent and will help your children to use vdr.

Hey hey, no problem but like i said meet me at the right place. :-) Then i
can explain how to update my script for your needs. I don't know how good
your german is but i said already on my homepage that the script was
written because of the (new)userunfriendly behavior of dvb/vdr. Written by
a beginner for other beginners to build a base for improvements. my
experience is that i've got lots, and i mean lots, of hits on the homepage
but no one was willing to help me out.
That's why the page has a unreadable state and is out of date now for a
long time and i do enhancing only for my owe needs.

Hey, you don't bothering me. You have only asked the right question on the
wrong place. :-)
