Subject description: This is Linus Torvald's email client of choice
 

Here's a post in FD64 forum: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=57389&start=238 featuring a few setup tips. (BTW/ Alpine is used by Linus Torvald, among others.)

Setup search result: http://www.google.com/search?q=alpine+setup

I prefer to do setup by editing the config files with a text-editor, for the most part. When it works `just that easy' on first run I get a good feeling. Suit yourself Smile

A review: http://email.about.com/od/linuxemailclients/gr/alpine.htm

Lucid Puppy can get this program from ubuntu, but there's no menu entry. As I was in compile-mode I just went ahead and did it.

Multiboot-friendly: my son's box has three operating systems accessing the same mail directory on the hard drive, all running different versions of Alpine.


Mail can be safe and useful again.

@ moB

The link to the *.PET file in the FatDog64 thread, just to clarify, is that only for that particular build or will it also run in a 32 bit environment?

Hi chrome307!

It was compiled under FD64, which is based on T2 and is 64 bit, so unless you're running a 64 bit T2 I think it would fail to work.

My experience is not good swapping around like that, but I could be wrong. What do I know?

I'll have another go at posting the pets tomorrow Smile

The more I learn the less know.

I compiled it with PL 4.31 using the source code available, it requires OpenSSL to be installed, alternatively you can 'make' it without the use of SSL.
