Modified initscriptsNG, so /sbin/iniscripts now supports user calls like that:
initservices start smb sshd bla bla bla
It solves dependencies, starts services that are needed for those explicitely asked etc. In "initservices stop", it will ignore services that user has asked to stop but are needed by other ones that would be still running after initservices stop.

pam_mount 0.3.1 has been released a few days ago, with another bugfix patch from Norway.

In the day-to-day work, lots of small things here and there that take a lot of time. I expect to finish KDE 2.01 packaging this week once and for all.

Another interesting thing I've been working on is the use of sound servers, to allow (among a lot of other things) the mix of n sound sources without hardware support for multiple DSP streams. I have tested KDE's aRts a lot. With a LD_PRELOAD trick, most programs will be fooled to play into aRts than to /dev/dsp. The only thing aRts is really lacking is some program to support RECORDING. aRts needs full-duplex in soundboard to support recording, and most of soundboards out there (e.g. notebooks) does not support that.
