Why is pine(elf) much slower than pine(a.out)?

Why is pine(elf) much slower than pine(a.out)?

Post by bbo.. » Sat, 24 Aug 1996 04:00:00

I have just upgraded to slackware 3.1, form a slackware 2.0 system (that
was state of art but a.out...).
And now it seems to me that the overall speed of my system dropped and
especially the imap service from pine is a lot slower than before...

Since I have lots of inboxes on a distant machine (LAN), the check that
took me about 15sec. before now runs in about 1min20....

what's happening?

1. Pine 3.95 and pine.conf/pine.conf.fixed

Hello all,

Just a quick question for today.  I recently installed q-mail on my
system to replace sendmail.  One of the things required by this install
is moving the mail folders to the users directories.  System is FreeBSD
2.1.5-Release, Pine is version 3.95.

I would like to set up Pine to default to a file (Mailbox) in the user's
home directory.  I know I need to set inbox-path=Mailbox but for some
reason Pine seems to ignore it's system wide configuration file.  If you
specify the system wide file, it works fine.

I've got pine.conf in /usr/local/lib/ as specified as the default
location for the global config file in the man pages....  Where'd I go

Thanks for any pointers!!


PS: An e-mailed reply in addition to a follow up post is greatly
appreciated as my news feed isn't all that great ;)
