Hello, yes it is. Its the old 1.1 Version. Its running like a charm.

Of course i took a look into the new/last package of owl-startup. More
exact only into pool/sources/owl-startup/initscripts-5.00-1.src.rpm
and didnt find any differences. Therefore i was a bit irritated. 

After your response i found it of course in the native package.


Thank you
