anybody using nn as a commandline nntp news reader on ubuntu feisty?
Apparently, nn has some problems in recognizing the hostname of my local
machine. After installing nn on my machine, I try to start it by typing:
bram at theobio36.biol.rug.nl: nn
hostname=theobio36, You need a fully qualified domain name
so it cannot set my domain name properly. Somewhere, I guess, nn was so
smart to set as my hostname only theobio36, whereis my etc/hosts nicely
has the following line:
127.0.1.1 theobio36.biol.rug.nl theobio36
I guess a slightly smarter software package would have set my hostname
correctly. Anyone knows in which configuration file I could change this
setting of nn? Apparently there is no hostname option in /usr/lib/nn/conf...
In fact, I would welcome any suggestions on a commandline nntp
newsreader which is _usable_, since nn is not quite like that.
