lock-problem with mh-6.8.3

Post by Stefan Jank » Sat, 01 Jun 1996 04:00:00


I have compiled mh-6.8.3 for linux 1.99.5 with the libc 35.3.12. But
now I get the message:
inc: unable to lock and fopen /var/spool/mail/gonzo
if I want to read my emails with mhmail or inc.
How can help me? What is the solution for this problem?

Hi - a couple of questions:

I really want to run xmh but am having trouble building the mh-6.8.3
mh package under Slackware 1.2.1.  Its not very happy being compiled
with GNU make or cc.  Does anyone know how to build this package under

Failing that I downloaded xmail but it doesn't have instructions to
run.  Is there a man page around for xmail?
