If you upload a new version of nas, could you fix its /etc/init.d/nas
file? Right now it looks like this:

#! /bin/sh
# /etc/init.d/nas: start or stop the Network Audio System.

. /etc/init.d/functions

test -x /usr/bin/X11/auvoxware


1. The '.' line is obsolete.

2. The test line should read

test -f /usr/bin/X11/auvoxware || exit 0

or something like that...


PS Hmm... Would it be better to test for -f or for -x in the init.d
