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

Post by David M. Fogart » Mon, 02 Dec 1996 04:00:00



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
wrong?

Thanks for any pointers!!

-Dave

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

Try putting the file in /usr/local/etc.  HTH.

1. patching pine 3.95 with aix patch ...

PINE  3.95
OS    AIX 4.1
PATCH ftp://ftp.cac.washington.edu/pine/pine3.95.patch-1

Hello,

This does not seem to be the right behavior
for patch! Is it?
I am using aix patch not gnu's patch.

Thank you.
Farid      

%/usr/bin/patch < ./pine3.95.patch-1
