I just compiled elm-2.4p25. It compiled well, but when I try to read my
mail, elm says that my mailfile is still receiving messages... then it waits
7 seconds and then elm quits.
There is also lock file in /var/mail (/var/mail/eka.lock).

I used to use elm-2.4p23... this older version works well.. but I didn't
compile it myself.

I think that I did something wrong when I have to answer some questions to
the configuration-script before compiling elm-2.4p25.

What locking methods have you compiled into elm? I use only dot-locking,
neither flock nor fcntl, and elm works fine fore me.

ISTR that either flock or fcntl on their own will work, but selecting both
will result in the above behaviour.

1. Problem compiling ELM.

Hi All.

I am trying to recompile ELM so that I can have MINE.  The lib and src
directories seem to compile fine, BUT when gcc tries to put all the files
together into the elm executable it gives an error that seems strange:
./lib/libutil.a(getarpdate.o): Undefined symbol _get_tz_mins referenced from
trxt segment

I am not real fluent with gcc, do I need another CFLAG??

Any help appreciated, Thanks.
