    At this stage the ARTWARE MSGAPI (with JAM & Hudson support) builds
    cleanly on both 32-bit & 64-bit Linux but hasn't really been tested.

    cd api/unix
    make

    Any further progress on this?
    I'd love a Linux version :-)

    Progress!

    I finally have the Linux & FreeBSD ports working from the same code as the DOS,
    OS/2 & Windows versions.

    Build with:

    git clone https://github.com/zoomosis/artware
    cd artware/api/unix
    make
    cd ../../timed/unix
    make

    Run with:

    ../timedunx

    timedunx looks for timed.cfg in the current directory.

    Or you can run it with:

    ../timedunx -c$HOME/.timed

    Which will look for timed.cfg in the $HOME/.timed/ directory.

    Beware that it's quite experimental at this stage, but I'm using it to type this message. :-)

    i found this git repo after i found the svn repo... after a quick bout with

    /usr/include/stdio.h:27:10: fatal error: bits/libc-header-start.h: No such file
    or directory

    i installed libc6-dev-i386

    sudo aptitude install libc6-dev-i386

    and make worked for api/unix... so i tried to build netmgr for unix but there's
    no unix sundirectory or makefile :(

    i really want/need netmgr so i can manage some netmails that come through here that are misaddressed or otherwise need to be bounced... that's really all i'm after right now...


    [aside]
    when i compiled the code from svn, i was looking at the documentation for netmgr... it mentioned that a nodelist compiler was included that would create a GIGO nodelist index... when make finished, i didn't find anything like that... there was only a netmgr binary and i didn't see any source code that indicated that it would compile a nodelist index for netmgr to use...

    the BBS i'm running now (synchronet) does not use FTN nodelists like my old FD/RA/FE setup did... no version 7, GIGO, or similar nodelist... i do have a nodelist for the BinkIT.js mailer to use so i need a way to build a nodelist index for netmgr to be able to look up nodes in the nodelist, too...

    i'm only interested in handling netmail in *.msg format so i don't need JAM, SQUish, or Hudson support... sbbs doesn't support any of them anyway... [/aside]

    i went to the above git repo because i wasn't sure if the svn build of netmgr would work properly since it was 64bit... not sure which way to go or what to do now...

    So far I've only done GvE's MSGAPI & timEd for the GitHub code.

    I have no time to look at NetMgr, or WIMM.

    i really want/need netmgr so i can manage some netmails that come

    The SVN version of NetMgr builds in Linux. It uses XMSGAPI for *.msg.

    Though I've only run it a handful of times so it could be quite buggy.

    I wasn't aware of that.

    Evidently there is gigonode.zip in the original net100.zip archive from 1996. It includes source code for DOS & OS/2.

    I'll import it into the SVN & Github repo when I get a chance.

    I can't help you much if it breaks, but you can try it.

    The Husky Project has lxtrack which they describe as a NetMgr replacement. It may work well but I've never used it.

    Actually forget about Lxtrack. It doesn't build and the README in the Husky Github repo says it's no longer supported (since 2005).

    i've been dragging my feet heavily because i haven't felt like switching sbbs to using a script instead of the direct calls it currently does... i've only currently got two netmails that need bouncing if i follow fidonet policy properly... i could just delete them and the tosser would stop whining about them... well, not whining but pointing out that they cannot be imported because
    they are addressed to users that do not exist in my new setup... only have 17 compared to the 1000+ plus in the old setup...

    (BTW, I'm in a similar situation. Fucking FMail doesn't do JAM netmails. Guess where all my historical netmails are. Hence, I need an inbound .msg manager.)

    If you just want to access them, just configure the area in your Golded config.
    That has got nothing to do with FMail! ;)

    You can even move them to the .msg netmail area with Golded if you like... ;)

    You probably mean the other way around? (From .msg netmail to JAM)

    Yes, I did mean that. There is one 'bot mail from Z3C daily, ACKing my region segment. I may get one or two others during the day. If they're not cleared, the CFRoute log clags up. But with RNtrack now keeping the primary area clean,
    it's all hunky-dory.

    Oh, no problem. I have a Mystic config half-ish done (old version), put on hold as both my UPS boxes decided to die over the last six months. (First replacement is due this weekend.) First phase of re-organisation starts next week; this node's binkD/FMail/etc configs are converted to a VirtualBox system,
    on my other host system.

    I'd heard of RNtrack years ago but forgot it existed. Thanks. :)

    I did an SVN checkout and with some source code changes I got it to build and run in FreeBSD:

    30.05.2019 23:11:21 --- RNtrack 1.36/FBSD started.

    I have no real need for it at the moment but I suspect Mark Lewis will appreciate it - if he can get it to build on his system.

    Judging from problems I encountered building it in FreeBSD it may also need patches to build it on a modern Linux distro.

    didn't come to them so now i have another job on my hands... first thing was figuring out how to crack/grind raw corn and get them to start eating it... crushing the corn between two bricks is a tiring job... i found an old blender that works much better... another task is to find green plant material they will eat since i have to keep them in a cage and take them out to it... water is no problem, they take to that like geese...

    i haven't posted one... the information available on SF says to contact the current maintainer, Michael Dukelsky, which i have done... i didn't feel like joining another mailing list and i haven't looked to see if RU.RNTRACK is available at any of my feeds... i don't really care to join it/them for just one or two problems... i may later on, though, once i get into configuring it but it looks to configure very similar to netmgr... i'm not sure what one would
    do with the perl scripting support but it might come in handy at some point... for now, bouncing these few netmails is all i'm after ;)

    Is your problem with bison or flex?

    bison... i don't have flex installed that i know of... i also don't know if bison calls flex or not...

    Could you post the error you get here?

    the error was about " ={" and " = {" and said the "=" was unexpected...

    i took a chance and hacked all the above to just "{" (removed those equals signs) and bison completed... there were also four or five FILEBOX* lines that needed a ";" added before the ending "}"... the build now completes and i've sent a diff to Michael to use if needed/desired... said diff/patch file is 1494
    lines long and i can make it available to you/others if needed...

    Do you have an easy way to try a previous version of flex/bison?

    not that i know of... the system is maintained by aptitude and i'm loath to go forcing things around... especially since it is my BBS production machine and one of the stars for the NAB...

    my bad... it wasn't the documentation... it was trying to create the cfg.cpp and .hpp files (i think)... i finally hacked at it enough to get it to compile properly... basically converting many " = {" and " ={" to "{" and adding four (IIRC) missing ";"...

    i've had to spend the morning with the remaining three baby Toulouse
    Goose babies from this year's hatching...

    Oh, poor birdies. They are such angels.

    one of them definitely is now... it was quite worn out and lethargic when i got
    them out of the pool... it just sat down on the ground instead of trying to run
    around like the other two... it flew from this realm some 6 hours or so later... it was the calmest of them and didn't seem to mind being held... it ate some fresh ground corn "flour" and drank some water but just stayed in one place... i hate losing any critters...

    I don't know if this older Xubuntu has it,
    Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS \n \l

    Ubuntu 14.04.6 LTS \n \l

    yep, same as this workstation...

    FREQable from here as rntrack-1_32-lnx.tar.bz2 if you can/want.
    i might try that... i don't know if it'll run on my ubuntu server
    18.04 LTS installation, though...

    No wuckin' forries.

    :snort: hahahahaha! i haven't found it yet, though... ahh! dummy me! i was looking at the latest 1.36 which only has a precompiled winwhatever flavor available... i'll have to look and see if i can figure out the changes between 1.32 and 1.36...

    [time passes]

    doesn't look like much changed... a few (3 if i counted correctly) bugs fixed and some script/makefile changes but that's all... hummm...

    Hi! mark,

    On 30 May 19 20:49, you wrote to me:

    Uh, huh.
    i was asking you what your's is ;)

    The installer (errors) kept calling it g++ ...mmm, which it probably is but I don't wanna play with these things. I have a much damaged forehead from key dents.

    I figured as much when I triggered the 1.32 download, without looking.

    they are/were definite bugs... i'm curious to see what michael comes up with based on my report... it could be simply newer compiler requirements with stricter rules and newer standards being used...

    eg: i ran into problems when flightgear implemented some new C++11 type code...
    compiling FG on 14.04 was a trick but they fixed it up and we're still good to go even though 14.04 is now out of support... i've got to bite the bullet and cross my fingers and run the distupgrade thing... first i need to get another 1TB HD to clone to in case things go sideways... i'm more worried about messing
    up my virtual machine hosting capability... especially after i've just gotten my 64bit VMs to run again with the recent 14.04 stuff... i was having to force boot to an older kernel for them to run properly...

    Another option was to comment out that part of the Makefile.

    Since cfg.cpp already exists in the SVN tree, so there's probably no need to recreate it with bison.

    Curiously the FreeBSD makefile doesn't actually run bison. That's probably an error on the author's part, though I don't have bison installed anyway. (It's not part of the FreeBSD base.)
