So ....

found the segfault bug. Fixed some other things from making it run on slackware
and created all packages anew. Because of the work done it gives a new
version-number (only the patch-level).


The slackware packages are the two last with no distro name in them.
Just try it and please report bugs on github. Help can be obtained here.
Questions answered as well.

But I hope I can spend more time on the rewrite.
