I successfully installed a script to automatically launch in /etc/init.d on my new Raspberry Pi.
Unfortunately, it is a node.js app that never returns, and therefore hangs the device during boot (this is on Debian). Yes, I'm an idiot.
Is there a secret handshake I can do during boot to prevent it from running my init.d script so I can get to login and a shell to fix it?
&to background the process, or use
start-stop-daemon, which should handle things properly, even when the daemon doesn't really daemonize.
