Hi,

Iím running a script that I call from post-boot, the script I call is used to poll a directory and will never end. I noticed that calling the script keeps post-boot in the PS list Iím assuming because the script doesnít return back to post-boot.

My question is, is there a way that I can call a script from another script without waiting for the called script to finish?

Hope that all makes sense?:)

You must run that script in background. Example: ./myscript.sh &
use after the name of script. Ampersand will make it to go to background. But maybe better thing to do is to run your script from inittab or /etc/init.d.
