how to add en_GB locale

It works... problem solved. (There is many "englishes" in the package, but no time and probably no need to bother with that.)

Re: /etc/init.d/script not working at boot

I ended with "overwriting" system scripts (/etc/rc.d/rc.M, rc.local, rc.inet1) by my package. I would prefer other solution, but this works for me.

Re: /etc/init.d/script not working at boot

Hm, moving script to /etc/rc.d did not help. When added line /etc/rc.d/dropbear start into /etc/rc.d/rc.local, the scipt is run at boot and works, but I do not like this solution. I would prefer not having to edit system scripts, it all should be done in the XZM module. Where am I to put the module,...
