That is very interesting. I have look on it. I wanted to install it on
my debian, but I can not find a debian package with it. Also I can't
open alioth.debian.org for some reason (connectivity problems in
Sprintlink). So i try to read the documentation and I can not see how
the problem with the compatibility of the RC scripts is resolved. The
current init + rc scripts directory system is almost the same on every
Linux and XPG95 compatible Unix. That makes installing of redhat scripts
thru alien not so hard.
