nmh doesn't work as POP client with glibc

1999-11-30 Thread Glenn Burkhardt
I recently tried to configure nmh 1.0.2 to work as a POP client on a Mandrake Linux 6.1 system, which uses glibc 2.1.1, and it didn't work. The problem is the glibc edition of 'ruserpass.c', which is called by 'inc' to get the user password. The glibc edition of ruserpass won't prompt the user

nmh 1.0.4 doesn't work as POP client on LInux systems

2000-04-22 Thread Glenn Burkhardt
Last November, I submitted a bug report with patches for nmh - it didn't work as a POP client properly on Linux systems. But unfortunately, the patches didn't get into the 1.0.4 release, so here goes again: The Symptom: Unless .netrc is used, on systems using glibc 2.1.1, 'inc' fails to work

Re: nmh 1.0.4 doesn't work as POP client on LInux systems

2000-04-24 Thread Glenn Burkhardt
My solution was to completely take out any dependency on system ruserpass, and use the version packaged with nmh. If you want to take advantage of this, I recommend you get the latext CVS version. I think that this is the best solution - it gets my vote!

time for new edition??

2001-04-30 Thread Glenn Burkhardt
There are quite a few bug fixes in the CVS repository that could help folks out - isn't it time for a new release? In particular, I'm still seeing reports of problems with POP access that I know were fixed about a year ago... Thanks..

This note generated a bit of positive response. So can there be a new release now? I've just seen another note about POP access problems on the exmh mailing list. Thanks! There are quite a few bug fixes in the CVS repository that could help folks out - isn't it time for a new release?

I just compiled and installed without errors, but 'inc' is not working correctly. For what it's worth, POP access in the most recent release 1.1-RC1 of nmh works for me, with these two commands: /usr/local/nmh/bin/inc -snoop +inbox -truncate -nochangecur -width 100 -host priam -user asdf

If vim 6.0 is installed on a Solaris system, the 'ex' program included with vim 6.0 goes into an infinite loop when this statement in 'configure' is executed: if echo 'r /nonexist-file q' | ex /dev/null 21 It seems wrong to me to include a newline in the string this way. It could be

Sorry, spoke too soon. The real problem has to do with output redirection. if echo 'r /nonexist-file q' | ex works but if echo 'r /nonexist-file q' | ex /dev/null 21 hangs. Redirecting just standard output cause no problem. But there doesn't seem any output to redirect anyway...
