      Hi wedgemusic,

      did you make any progress with the screen package for LS1? I would
      love "screen" in combination with the Bittorrent package from Wiki
      (which works great!). This tool would really solve all my needs at the
      moment. See http://mandrivausers.org/lofiversion/index.php/t17941.html
      for details on the easy usage of "screen".

      I would really appreciate your efforts for the package!

      Kind regards,
