attached a function version of the slrn package.



Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-05-17 01:06:18 UTC
Um, you specified an invalid configuration directive for the version in 7.1.

What did you expect to happen?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-05-17 01:10:03 UTC
FWIW, slrn- is currently in rawhide.

Comment 5 Stephan "\sh" Hermann 2001-05-17 08:30:29 UTC

It was my mistake...
the configuration directives are introduced in and not in
no matter, it's my fault, but the documentation of slrn without saying anything
about date and version 
of introducing this directives is also buggy.
