Suggested addition to allmine

So javese started pumping out applications using eink display through direct access to frame buffer device. The device file normally does not allow write access to everyone, so javese makes his applications running as root, which is not good for any complicated application that may have bugs.

I thought that it would make sense to add to allmine installer script an action to modify startup script (init.rc maybe) to change the permission of /dev/graphics/fb2 during startup.

ktwombley: would be willing to look into that? Or I could look into it and send you patch to include in your next release?
