Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Okay... you should have needed to reboot. Also, did you install the package from the link before I edited it or after? Because if it was before then you probably installed the wrong binary. Do a pkg_delele of it and install the i386 binary.
What probably happens is it is looking for a library you don't have... oops... let me edit it one more time to point to 3.6 as well. I clearly wasn't paying attention when I hit the ftp tree this morning.
file maildrop-1.8.0.tar.bz2 said it was an HTML document... hmm... could be onto something there
I've just downloaded the version from the ports.
Thanks for your help - where I can find a search function for the ports? For example I had a fair idea I needed bunzip2 but didn't know where to find it within the ports. I'm a user of Gentoo also and Gentoo has the
'emerge -s bunzip2' option which will list closes matches that are listed in the emerge tree. Is there a similar option in OpenBSD?
As for a way to search them... you could install the ports tree or something. To be honest, I don't have OpenBSD currently installed and I haven't ever installed it on a machine which I used for an extended period of time. Not because it is bad but I just have really weak machines to test stuff on (I actually need to use my desktop computer so FreeBSD is safe on it).
Not sure how big the file was. I've deleted it. Now all I need to do is find out where I'm suppoed to run the make command for this version of maildrop. I'm following a guide to setup qmail and the guide tells me how to use maildrop-1.8.0 hence why I was trying to use it. They told me where to get it from but as we've found out, the file they send me to was a HTML file.
I cp's the maildrop file into a dir called /package/maildrop and then did a:
tar xvf maildrop-1.5.3.tgz
what's the general rule of thumb to now find where to run the
You don't need to untar it... it is a package. Just use the pkg_add command like you did for bzip2
EDIT: You really aren't being a pain at all. You are giving me something to do while I wait out the clock here at my work. Another hour before I can get home to sleep. And I have got to keep my mind active somehow.
