    Default No News Readers in Yast?

    I'm a newbie (2 days) with SUSE 11.
    I find no news readers (eg Tin) in Yast.
    I can build it myself if necessary, but
    it would be simpler if Tin were available.

    ( It looks like I will also have to DiM for
    getmail and msmtp.)

    slrn I like slrn better than tin anyhow... but
    YMMV.

    You can use Thuderbird or Evolution if you want
    graphical news readers (there are other choices
    as well).

    Have you seen Pan?. It's "Agent-like" and is in the main and updates repositories.

    If you want a decent binary graber that works off nzb's, check out Sabnzbd+. It's pretty slick. It's out on sabnzbd.org. It's just an unzip with no binaries really. It's Python driven. There's some pre-req's, but they are all spelled out on the site. There's a forum to get you going.

    I use the Pan to browse, but do most of the downloading with Sab. I find binsearch.info helpful for gathering nzb's.

    If you want Tin go here Webpin type 'news reader' in the search box and the first package on the list is Tin. Use 1-click install

    Keep in mind that anything from the home:/ directories isn't guaranteed
    to work, so it's "use at your own risk". In this case, I haven't
    actually been able to make tin work, though it builds without any
    problems (obviously, since the package is there). The tin-unstable
    package seems to work AFAICT, so I'm going to be removing the "stable"
    packages until I figure out what's wrong with them.
