Sorry for the delay, but a problem or two has had to be fixed.

For 431 users, the version is now out!

For 5.1 / 5.2 users, I have managed to create a working Eudora OSE V1.0 (lucid) with luci246 that I am happy with (no problems found for new users/installers).
It can be found on my site at: http://www.lamiaworks.com.au/puppy_eudora.html.

For Wary Users, I have not been able to get a working package so far, I suspect something is missing so are working through each individual package requirement to see what's been left out. Consider it a w.i.p. with a Jan 5 deadline. -update found missing lib is the problem, chasing a pet.

For ALL existing Eudora users, you should backup/copy your hidden /root/.thunderbird directory for safety, then you can either uninstall the old RC1/2 versions and install this one, or just install this one over what is already there as it's smart enough to "update".

all problems to the bugs thread please, not here.

regards

For wary users the package is now out, there are two additional dependancies needed, I have added them to the directory.

From Qualcomm's Eudora Site:
---------------------------------------
To get involved with the development of open source version of Eudora, be sure to visit the Penelope page at Mozilla.

The EMS API is no longer available for the development of Eudora plug-ins.
-----------------------------------------
This means others cannot work on Eudora OSE

And:

the below has been copied from jhmyers (our linux Eudora contact) from the Eudora Forum.

OSE's future is unknown

Don't raise your expectations too high about future OSE developments, given that nothing has been updated since OSE 1.0 (July 2010) and no comments have been made in response to questions about whether OSE will ever catch up to later versions of Thunderbird (OSE 1.0 is unfortunately based on a somewhat buggy TB version, and TB has continued to be extensively modified since that time).

You could, however, start using TB at any time,
since TB works with all the same user files as OSE.
----------------------------------

Between them, i've thought them now serious enough to put here.

I'm not happy but at least v1.0 still works ok for most things.

There have been requests for a wary52 version.

I shall build one and put it on my site in a day or two (mon-tue) after my basic testing process on it has been completed!

the wary http://www.lamiaworks.com.au/puppy/eudora/EudoraOSE-V1-w5.pet version was renamed without renaming the folder EudoraOSE-V1 to EudoraOSE-V1-w5 and then rebuilding the pet, This causes a install error error on 2.14X, so all I did was rename the pet from EudoraOSE-V1-w5 to EudoraOSE-V1 and it installed fine on 2.14X, it did complain about missing a few gnome libs but it still slowly started and looked ok.
