Is this tutorial minded on a specific interface? That's what the title says :) Although the procedure is similar for other devices.

What is "Erwin Rol's driver" meant to do? (is it to support some specific hardware that is not supported directly by LLA?) LLA uses the driver to support the enttec open dmx.

The first time QLC is run int the tutorial, it is run as root. Why? Good question - this should be removed. I think it was probably added to get around any permissions problems with the devices but this isn't the way to solve the problem.

It would be nice if the intro explained what you can achieve over a default installation of LLA+ QLC from the repositories.
