slrn, leafnode & 'from:' header oddness

Post by SammyTheSna » Tue, 01 May 2001 23:35:21



I'm using slrn to post to localhost which is running leafnode which connects
to news.ntlworld.com via an ntlworld dialup account. My from: address is

my username on my local computer is sammy and the hostname for the local
computer is osyd, so I can see a rationale for some of this addy, but the
rest is a mystery!

anone think they can shed some light on this?

Cheers & God bless

What's the entry for 'hostname' in your ~/.slrnrc ?

So it's not that that's doing it, then. But now I'm curious as to why you
set hostname to "home.com" in .slrnrc when it's actually "osyd"...


already solved it.

What do you get if you set hostname in .slrnrc to "ntlworld.com" and
username to "sam.penny"?

1. Leafnode/slrn - can't see new messages until texpire is run

Is the fetchnews finishing correctly?  What does it say if you run
"/usr/sbin/fetchnews -vvv" while online?  Does this happen with other
newsreaders?

I'm assuming that's the Debian packages.  Could you please file a bug
report against Leafnode, particularly if this happens with other
newsreaders too?
