LCDproc: no nexcom.so ?? (pfs 2.3.5)
Busy trying to get the LCDproc working on a NSA1405L(FL). looking at https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=15913.msg82910;topicseen#msg82910 it should be there, and even have a dropdown menu option "nexcom (x86 only)", but seems that the installation media I used, doesn't have it:

Looks like there is no perfect solution, yet, but there is a write-up here that highlights a couple of options:
After looking around some more, it looks like support for the Nexcom devices was added to the "generic" hd44780 driver after all:
So, these Nexcom devices are supported by the base lcdproc project code. Not sure the pfSense integration package was updated, though…
