Ok. Gpm, fetchmail and libraries. I got questions for them all. ;)
I guess I'll start with the most important.. Libaries..
I go to install a program and get some surprising dependencies...
libc.so.6 (GLIBC_2.0), (2.1), (2.2),
However, I have these! I mean, I just did a Slackware 8 Expert install
and installed everything on the list. Plus, I'm in X right now (regarding
the X libs). What do you guys think is configured incorrectly?
Whenever I run fetchmail it previews my new messages and rings
a bell for each message, even when the silent switch is given.
gpm is not working correctly. It says it starts at startup,
however it does not work. I ran 'gpm -m /dev/mouse -t ps2'
to try to start it manually, but no cigar. Any ideas?
Oh, and another thing. I had to reinstall, and when I restored
my backed up files.. a lot of them are shortend with a ~.. for
example: install-sendmail.tar was called...instal~1.tar, etc.
Strange. Any ideas? ;)
Sorry for all the questions. These have been building for some
time, the ~ put me over the edge to ask them. I have been
searching around for answers for quite some time. I'm a
self tought Unix user, so I have some loop holes in my learning
that I'm trying to fill in.
Thanks a lot!
Take it easy and happy holiday's!
