I do not understand what you mean, as this is used by ubuntu (I noticed
when I installed one last week for my brother) so It seems all right.
Or maybe I missread what was in grub's menu.lst
I'll have to check.

Hum, in fact I do not want to write my own, but when I tried his I felt
uncomfortable with the use of a unix socket as it cannot be reached from
outside the NAS, which may be seen as better. But we could use an option
to have it listening on lo instaed of any interface for this, and then
get rid of the hand removal of the existing socket when the programm is
killed (or crashes as it happend to me)
Neither did I like the use of a "library" and threads while there's only
one thread. But this has changed in the new version.
Though, it now uses Lua wich will require lua installed on the NAS only
for a fairly simple programm controling two leds and buttons ....
I'll ask Byron Bradley about this, but I'd like to have your point of
you on this too.
I also added uucp locking for the serail port.
