Any process started from /etc/inittab runs as root!
Here's my solution:
I've uncommented "1:235:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1" in /etc/inittab
(Use tty1 as it is selected automatically at startup)
1:235:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1 --> #1:235:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1
You can still switch to the other ttys by ALT-Fx to handle your OS !!!
Then put the following line into /etc/inittab
Edit /PATH2VDRDIRECTORY/runvdr and set absolute paths to DVB-driver, etc.
