If your netlists are opensource, can you place a copy on our FEL git
repo please ? It will serve a testing. Little by little we are setting
up a testing suite which we can use to ensure that the EDA softwares
are working on the Livedvd.

Indeed the .measure features were missing. Do you want to co-maintain
ngspice with me ? But if you are pulling some features from CVS, other
users will have the same issues.

As for pharosc, I had to strip winspice and other binaries from the
sources. I don't know about what exactly. However GrahamPetley
sometimes talk about them. If you need more information, it's better
to start another thread with him in CC: so that we can track every
missing feature.
