Hi Chris, do you still have your 240?

I read your email, but as I don't have multiple interfaces I think I skimmed the last bit too quickly, sorry.

I'm not sure I quite understand the approach though, and one of my problems with systemd is you only get a Microsoft style "Failed". If there was actually an error message, it would help a lot.

Which package do I need to install?
