Newbie - Mail question and other odds and ends
Wow - linux is not for the faint of heart. After a number iterations of
deselect I have both Xwindows and netscape happening. I have to
say that dselect seems to be pretty good at keeping track of what
has and hasn't been installed, and making sure that it gets fixed
the next time around.
Thanks to all who helped me out (I think I had a dozen replies!).
Today's challenge is mail. I gather that getting and sending my
email via dial up is a process that needs a number of components.
Initially I think I'll just use Netscape as an email package.
(Although I LOVE Pegasus mail on my PC).
WVdial is working wonderful, so what bits do I need in the chain to
get my mail to and from Netscape? And what programs configure
them? Obviously I'd like the mail for a user to reside in their home
A couple of quickies as well: I gather that there are configuration
files for most of the things that I've installed. Is there a convention
for naming these (like ending them in .conf), and where are they
likely to be kept?
A Debian specific one: when installing from discs one is presented
with a nice package that allows you to install various components
like mice and CDROMs and such. Is that tool still accessible after
you've installed the base system?
Thanks folks - last time you saved me several hours.
