View Full Version : /var/hack dir

I lost my hack dir and just got it back online now..

when I send files to the tivo over bash, it tends to change the name from lower case to upper case... can someone do a printscreen of there /var/hack dir and post it here for me so I know what it should look like? Is there anyway to have it not change the name of the file (I am using hyperterminal)

one more thing is that when my hack directory isnt there, I can still use the commands like DIR and CHATTR, etc.. does this mean that my hack dir is moved somewhere? Or does extreme25 copy those files to another directory as well?

First use teraterm (avaiable on the net).

You need to create the /var/hack directory on the TiVo then copy the contents to the new directory.

From the root of the TiVo type mkdir /var/hack

Once you have created the dir change to it.

Then in teraterm zmodem send the files to the dir.

Yah, I did that.. got the hack.zip thats been floating around here.. do any of those files have to be executable?

All of them are -rw-------

I guess I can do the chattr +I * to all of them so I dont loose them again?
