Installed via Gslapt with no issues.  Well done and welcome to the "club" Drgrov  :)  Clever build script too!

Just a reminder to folks, we need to report WORKING packages as well as broken ones.  Otherwise these packages sit around in "testing" and become outdated or forgotten.  So chime in and give your input for EVERY package you try out from testing. It only takes a handful of good reports.  Let's start getting these things moved to were they belong.

Also, it's a good feeling for the packager, knowing he/she has a good working package out there, and someone is actually using it.

That build script was done by uel to make building a lot easier for me so I can produce results instead. :)

Stop complaining about everything, do something about it instead.

I knew  :) He shared it with me the other day. I think it will be very quick/useful and still meet our requirements.
