I am using INX 1.17 now as a base to make a samba and openvpn server.
I am doing a remastersys remix and the one thing that doesn't work out
so well is the terminal size shrinks on the remastered version and the
nice menu system gets margin whacked.
It's very well for me to use your base. I just wonder if there is a
quick fix I am overlooking before I go in to resize the menu system.
I really appreciate the work you've done. I enjoy the command line
environment though I am still a newb.
Sincerely Warren Smith
