well - i just had a swing at fetchmail and after some trial and error i got it to deliver mail to /var/spool/mail/&user - yipee ! - i checked in with mutt and gkrellm sais there is mail -
i never was a kmail fan - somehow never could get it to do whot i wanted and recently discovered evolution - and well haven't looked back since -
i think me and fetchmail gonna be very good friends cause i don't need to download emails anymore FM does it for me so all i have to do later is use evolution and read it !!!
i am strugling though with one thing i have slack 9.1 installed on 2 seperate partitions so they work individually - the first one is the full install and the second is full install for the exception of gnome and kde and xfree86 for the reason of trying out dropline gnome - now thing is this on the first clean install i can run fetchmailconf gui but the dropline system that is the same as first but only with dropline can't run FMconf ?? y is this ?? does it need xfree86 or something cause it complains bout python Tkinter and there is not much diff between the two installs ??? any ideas ???
btw - how do i run fetchmail at startup like a deamon ?????? or rather can it be done - besides for configuring fetchmail i don't want anything more to do with it except for it to fetch(my)mail ...
