It's still sort of in Beta. (But working very stable here and at a
node in Australia for a couple of years now) So it's not directly
available. You need to compile it from source yourself (if your linux
is to far removed from the kernel and libraries I'm using). And the
configuration program hasn't been converted to linux yet. So you need
a (virtual) windows to do the configuration. If you are still
interested I'll give you the details. ;)
I have a linux development box so I dont think dependencies will be an issue. It has a full -dev install on it and I have a windows machine
for the config :)
Ok, you can try the executables in these files:
BTW: Maybe we should take this to netmail, or a more apropriate area. Since you are nolonger in fidonet FMAIL_HELP isn't an option, so maybe MAIL_AMY?
Thanks.. I'm going to have to go the source code route.. I run a non-multilib Linux so only 64bit

Sounds like a plan.. I moved the post before replying :)
You could try the executables I'm using. They are 64 bit. But compiling
is better, because you can optimize for your system/processor.

bash: ./fmail: No such file or directory
ftools runs but fmail doesn't (the binary release)..
I grabbed the source but codeblocks is saying "FMail" does not support
the current platform. Skipping.. when I try to build the project. Same with FTools in C::B
So I can't build it on a pure 64-bit system? I dont have any 32bit
libs installed and to do so would require me to have to build a 32bit cross platform environment .. bummer
I'm building and using it on a 64 bit linux system, without 32 bit dependencies
It's weird.. I installed a different 64bit distro and both the FMail
and FTools executables worked.
I'm using dosbox to setup the config .. but I'm noticing when I enter
a unix path of say /ele/mail for netmail it sets it as \ele\mail ..
when I read the config with the linux tools will it translate the
paths back to / ?
