 I installed this binary package

 on my freebsd 6.1 system and while testing had a problem related to 
 /usr/local/lib/python2.3/lib-dynload/_socket.so (it didn't appear to be 
 there).
 
 When I build from the source of the package it seems OK. Is this a bug? The 
 binary install mentioned certain bits might be missing, but socket wasn't one 
 of 
 them. If it is a bug what's the reporting mechanism?

man send-pr

what an awful interface that was ;( made me grumpy using it. Perhaps I've grown

You are right Alex. I had forgotten about that never having used it
personally. I have a question though. The PC based send-pr captures
certain system attributes. Does the web based one function similarly? I
don't believe it does.

you're right; part of the cli version has bits already filled in with the 
release version and (I believe) output from uname -a.

more relaxing somehow even though it's really the same info. Perhaps 
it was the fact that send-pr uses vi rather than my normal vim. All 
those nice colours would have helped. Thanks for the pointers.


If you set $VISUAL in your environment to /usr/local/bin/vim (assuming 
that's where it lives) then send-pr ought to use that for your editor.  
The same is true for many other utilities which use an editor such as 
less, cvs etc.  Only need to be careful that in single-user mode you may 
not have /usr/local available in which case a quick unset VISUAL or 
unsetenv VISUAL ((t)csh) is all you need.


(If VISUAL is not set most utilities then look for $EDITOR.  
Traditionally EDITOR was expected to be a line-editor which would work 
on a teletype, but not much call for that these days :-)).

Probably not - been a while since I used it though :-).  A quick check 
indicates no.   Also, web-based version is trickier for patches IIRC 
since simple cut-and-paste into a web form can end up translating tabs 
to spaces.  Easy enough to just attach a patch though.


Over all I remember finding the web form easier - release info and uname 
-a not too hard to cut-and-paste.  In the end, it's a matter of personal 
preference, I guess :-)
