Thanks for pointing that out....didn't see it when I looked.

'Might be a difference in the compiling.....don't know. But, because of
your success, I had to try to get it to work.

I'm sure I know Grizz, and if so, I think he'll be fine. Most I'd recommend
that they wait till release. I don't normally recommend to anyone "new"
that they upgrade to a beta release of anything. I'll beat up on my own
systems before I put it in use for clients. I've been testing some 
software, by the way. Vuescan won't run yet....still working on that.
Turboprint DOES work, even though the monitor daemon crashes.


A REVOLUTIONARY IDEA! 'Time to put Nana Pelosi in a home!'
