to get the gallantweb 500 serial lcd working with something like redhat fedora core 1 while retaining the functionality of the original gallantweb software (including front panel buttons working)... (dcarr has written an alternative lcd script but front panel buttons do not work)
i guess you need the files...
(can someone verify this?)
pay attention to the permissions... if you nuked the original install on the gallantweb you can just grab those files from the cd-rom inside of gallant.tar
start manually as root by issuing an /etc/rc.d/init.d/lcd_daemon
hope that helps!!!
(if someone is still looking for an gallantweb 500 server you can find them on ebay all the time and i think outpost.com still has the gallantweb 700's)
