I attached the patch with some modifications for your review.
I compiled and installed the ola package correctly.

John, how I can make a real test to see if it works?


Thanks

Hi Rene,

Thank you so much for doing this.  If 'make check' succeeds, those are
the main tests, but to check installation, I would look for the
following programs being installed:

    ola                   ola_e131        ola_plugin_state   ola_rdm_set
    ola_set_priority      ola_trigger     ola_uni_name       ola_artnet
    ola_dmxconsole        ola_patch       ola_rdm_discover   ola_recorder
    ola_streaming_client  ola_uni_info    ola_uni_stats      olad
    ola_dmxmonitor        ola_plugin_info ola_rdm_get        ola_set_dmx
    ola_timecode          ola_uni_merge   ola_usbpro         ola_dev_info

These are the programs installed by the Debian ola package, and I don't
know what packaging options might have affected which were installed,
but the list should be more or less the same.

To start the ola daemon and generate a config:

    olad -c ~/my-ola

This should start a web service on port 9090, so you can point a web
browser to localhost:9090 and see if anything comes up.

To connect the dummy device,

   ola_patch -d 1 -p 0 -u 0

Universe 0 should then be listed in both the web interface and in:

   ola_uni_info

If those things work, the only remaining thing to test is actual
hardware control, but we would be in pretty good shape.

Thanks again.
