Ah, I see.  I feel stupid for not realizing this myself.
I'll also remember to keep everything lowercase (I was actually
thinking about this when changing the files but though it didn't
matter much and kept the uppercase character thinking it was okay
since it's the original name -- lesson learned ;))

Will do.

I'll create patches tomorrow and send them in.

It's my every intention to participate in DSLinux.
I've been watching from the side-line for all this time (since
DarkFader started publishing his findings); I watched every step of
the way until now, witnessed a lot of changes since the beginnings of
DSLinux and tried most releases (I have a lot of respect for a lot of
the people involved): I felt I owed it to DSLinux to at least do
something to help.
I consider myself a programmer (albeit only novice/intermediate) but
in all my years of being around code I never really made anything
useful, just proof-of-concept applications or small things not worth

Anyway, I'm rambling.  My point is that I want to do something to
contribute and feel this is a way to be involved with the two things
I'm passionate about: the Nintendo DS and Linux. ;)

Kind regards,
