Virtual Disk2 stopped working - can't open include.sh

After many months of working fine, Virtual-Disk2 that I use with Network Shares Automount has suddenly stopped working. When I checked the virtual-disk log it show an error - can't open '/etc/init.d/include.sh' . I have checked in init.d and that file does not exist. I have another Humax and that does have an include.sh. First thought was to copy it over but the init.d directory only has write permissions for root. If I ever did know how to gain root access through telnet then I have forgotten it. I have checked through the Custom Firmware options for anything that might help but failed to spot anything. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Other than that, uninstall and reinstall.

Are you referring to write permissions (the 'w') here ? :-
Code:
Humax1# ls -dal init.d
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 352 Apr 26  2017 init.d
If so you are automatically logged on as root so there shouldn't be a problem e.g. :-
Code:
Humax1# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)
Humax1#

Thanks. It is the custom firmware version that is the problem. The Humax with the problem is running 3.03 and the one that's OK is running 3.12. I realise now that I updated packages on both and I must now have a version of virtual disk that depends on 3.11 or above.

I have to admit I had forgotten about the need to update the custom firmware. (embarrassed) I will report back when updated.

It's another case where it would have been useful if the package system could have dependencies on the CF version.
