new included in it, which also would make no sense now, that lenny is
(hopefully) only monthes away. Also 2.4.17 is, well, useless for any open

several similar daemons for the handling of the AVR chip on linkstations /
Just for an example of what alternative approaches can be taken to handle
the chip I am attaching two simple programmes I am using on my kurobox-HG.
