squeezeplay-fb (fb=framebuffer): no X (i.e. don't start X, run it from

Squeezeplay = player + UI
Jivelite = UI (i.e. Squeezeplay without the player)
Squeezelite = player

SW: extGUI4LMS - new web UI: 'forum'
/ 'homepage' ( | 'LMSlib2go'
| 'music visualizer'
for squeezelite
HowTos: 'build a self-contained LMS'
| 'Ogg Opus support'
| 'Bluetooth with ALSA'
| ' update bundled perl modules'
