 hi :),
 the libwebsockets-test-server keeps telling me this

 even after a fresh install with 2014-01-07-wheezy-raspbian.

 Here is the list of comands i did directly after the install:

 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get upgrade
 sudo reboot
 sudo apt-get install cmake git libssl-dev
 sudo git clone git://git.warmcat.com/libwebsockets
 cd libwebsockets
 mkdir build
 cd build
 sudo cmake ..
 sudo make
 sudo make install

 sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/libwebsockets.so /usr/lib/libwebsockets.so
 sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/libwebsockets.so.4.0.0

 Did i do anything wrong or is it a bug? I would really enjoy using your
 lib but i can't get it working.
