Don't agree! >From my point of view, the setup options have to get divided into frontend- and backend-settings. Then all settings of each group should get divided into installation settings and user-changeable settings. For me, all FHS-related settings are installation settings. Same is true for remote.conf and - of cause - the button order. If you look at a possible multi-client installation, the button order is a frontend-setting, which is an installation setting. You only change it, when you buy a new remote control and then, the button order is not the only setting, that needs to get changed. I consider it ridiculous, being able to change the video-driver by osd. That video driver is used by xine to render images to frontend, which possibly is on a different machine. This way it is possible to crash the vdr without possibility of recovery. So moving a setup entry from osd to i.e. /etc/default/vdr may possibly decrease user flexibility, but may increase system stability and safety. So from my point of view, osd-setup entries are user-changeable backend settings (well, currently the frontend user-changeable settings are stil mixed within). All other entries should be handled differently. But that issue will probabely pop up again after 2.0 cheers Gero _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
