16 The machine is actually a server, which just sat in a corner doing its
17 job perfectly. That's one of the reasons it wasn't updated: if it ain't
18 broken, don't fix it. But the important thing is that it has no X11,
19 pretty much nothing apart from the basic system and a handful of
20 network daemons. Now it needs one more daemon and that started the
21 whole exercise.
