KMail - KDE2 and non local filesystems

KMail - KDE2 and non local filesystems

Post by Ston » Sat, 04 Nov 2000 04:00:00



Greetings, I apologise if this has been raised before, I could not spot a
reference to it...
I hve encountered an interesting "feature" I beleive in Kmail with KDE2. I
have /home living on a different machine, NFS mounted. When I launch KMail,
I get as far as
kmail: entering KMKernel::init()  
in the console and no further. I created a new user with a home directory
on a disk in the same machine and KMail fires up fine. Anyone else com
accross this, know of this, know of a fix I can apply?

Moving all the home dirs to a local disk is not an option, we run a
distributed shop here.

Many Thanks for any help

Same Problem here :(
kmail becomes a 'Zombie' after a short while...
I'm not exactly a hacker, but I ran strace on kmail and this is what I got:

Anyone here who knows what that means ?

1. TERM:Remote X,local client; Non-local clients

I have some questions about using term

1) How can I let someone logging into my local system (via tredir 2300 23)
  To run a local X-client and have the output appear on his display?

2) How can I run a local client (webster in this case) and have it
   connect to its server.  The server is not on my internet-remote, but
   on another system.

3) Is there a way for term to start up tredir and txconn automatically,
   like in a startup or rc file?
