> Glad to hear you got it working!
Well, actually I just broke it again. :-( Let me describe what I did and
maybe it'll spark an answer:
All of my FidoNet echos start with "local.fido" So I have the FidoNet
LINUX echo named "local.fido.linux". I was using an entry in
/etc/ifmail/Areas (why the capital A?!:-) of:
LINUX local.fido.linux local.fido
Note the local.fido distribution field on the end. Everything else in
the Areas file was the default. Why did I use a distribution field, heck, I
don't know, it guess it just looked pretty. :-/
With this setup ifunpack worked fine. However, when I went to post a
follow up message in one of the echos (using 'tin -r' to run my newsreader)
tin would complain about the unknown group and not let me post the followup.
So I then went into my Areas file and killed the distribution field,
Now, when I run ifunpack I get the following error messages in my logs:
iftoss: Expipe: /usr/bin/rnews
iftoss: caught SIGSEGV at offset 0x400723c0
ifunpack: Error tossing packet 3c24d870.pkt
ifunpack: processed 0 of 0 files, 0 of 1 packets, rc=6
iftoss: called from 0x08050f3a
iftoss: called from 0x0804bb71
iftoss: called from 0x0804b4c6
iftoss: called from 0x08049954
iftoss: called from 0x0804975e
and my packets get renamed to *.bad. Does anyone have a clue as to what
might be causing this error?
