For regular users of the pan newsreader planning to upgrade to FC6:
FC6 installs the newest branch of pan (nice) which does not import any
existing user settings (ouch).
For a simple one-server, one-profile setup, it's no big deal to enter
these manually again. Old pan settings are left in ~/.pan, while new ones
are created in ~/.pan2. So you can look through the .xml files for
servers and profiles.
For more complicated setups, there are some useful suggestions here:
In particular, I would have used this bit of advice BEFORE upgrading:
>Subscribed group and read-message tracking: You'll want to use old-pan's
>newsrc export ability for this, setting the preferences to write the
>newsrcs. You'll need to ensure one is created for each server. New-pan
>uses newsrc files directly, so once you have them created in old-pan, all
>you have to do is move them into correct place in new-pan.
Just recently my evolution on FC5 started to display deleted message
subjects with a large black bar that I find distracting instead of
the previous tastefully thin overstrike to indicate deletion. Does
anyone know how to get the old display back? I assume this was a
change from a recent update, but I don't see anything about
evolution in the yum log.
I try to configure the free wmvear server for FC5 and get error as follows,
i do have folder /etc/xinetd.d
cvs eklogin ekrb5-telnet gssftp klogin krb5-telnet kshell rsync
