most: cannot display *.gz files
I am having a problem with the version of most that came with
slink (v4.8.1-0.1) which I am unable to solve despite looking
in all the docs, man pages and the mailing archives.
I can view any file with "most <file>", except for gzipped files.
Whenever I try that, I get
<file>: failed to open for reading.
I am running slink, with a few potato packages added (list of installed
packages available if requested) to be able to run the 2.2.10-kernel
and newer versions of diald, for example. I am in the process of installing
and setting this machine up to be a server for the local mini network, so I
have not run a whole lot of programs until now that might have produced
errors as well and pointed me in the right direction as to where the source
for the problem might be; this is the first error I have encountered in
using the system so far.
