apollon/gift and email not working
maybe should have started 2 threads for 2 questions, but here goes anyway. i'm running suse 9.1 with KDE desktop.
i'm running Kmail. i can send mail when i'm logged in as root, but when i log in as a normal user, i can't send mail. when logged in as either, i can download mail. any ideas? i would be inclined to think it's something to do with permissions, but i'm just guessing. i'm still a linux newbie.
i'm trying to use apollon p2p with ares, openft, fastrack plugins. it was working very well until a day or two ago, now apollon tells me there is a problem loading giFT daemon. giftd in terminal returns:
giftd: as_download_conn.c:376: downconn_request: Assertion 'start < end' failed. Aborted
the last thing i recall installing was nget for newsgroups but that didn't work either but that's another thread. i've tried removing packages for apollon, all the plugins and gift then reinstalled all of them, but they still didn't work. any ideas on this one?
any help for either of these problems is greatly appreciated.
