: Yes, it's a newbie problem. I've tried to mail myself using 'elm'
: and 'mail' but...no results. I've checked /usr/spool/mail but
: tehre are no mails for root and other users (i've created some).
Ahhh! I just compiled my first kernel 6 days ago.. call me a newbie

You need a working mail transport in order to send/receive local/remote
mail. I recommend the sendmail8.6.9 package at sunsite.unc.edu in
system/mail/??. Read the directions carefully, prepare a sendmail.cf
file, use the install script, and you should be up and running within
a few hours.

: Any idea what should i do to fix teh problem? I use Linux 2.0.0 and

what kernel did you compile? Maybe you are using Slackware 2.0?
