Hi Matthias,

All the files have the same permissions, user and group (root:root [and
i know, that this is not a good idea :)])).  But it was not possible to
use the font and grafic files if the are referenced with symlinks.

I will try tomorrow if the problem exists if i use a speacial vdr user,
but why should it work with non-root when it doesn't with the root user?
