"rcS" script to print a message "This is to test the

"test_shell &"

I have built two images for the target with the kernel
versions linux-2.6.18 and linux-mips-2.6.12.

In case of liunux-mips-2.6.12 i am able to see the
prints on the console.

In case of liunux-2.6.18 i am not getting the prints
on the console. if i try "ps" command i am able to see
the process running in the background.

In both kernel versions libraries and shell used are

What could be the reason for this?
Please suggest me some solution for this.

Could any body please suggest an alternate solution to
start the application from the rcS as a daemon
"test_shell&" and still get the prints on the

Thanks in advance.
