Can mutt be updated ?
« on: March 10, 2012, 10:41:35 PM »
bmarkus any chance of getting mutt updated to latest version ?
I need the support for smpt.

current microcore 3.8.4 version does not support smtp, if your busy, I can do it.

Thanks.
Live long and prosper.

You can take over mutt maintenance. I'm not using it now, better if an activ user is doing it :-)

Do it for 4.x not only for 3.8

I've achieved my goal to be able to send email from a shell script using mutt-1.5.21 with smtp enabled during compile.

Here are the configure options I used.
Code: [Select]
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-imap --enable-pop --enable-smtp --with-homespool=/var/spool/
While I have satisfied my own needs, I feel I need the input of a seasoned linux user to ensure that I include the best all round compile options for greater usability. I'm very inexperienced with mutt

I will keep the compile options for future releases, as long as I am the maintainer.

I'm going with the following cimpile options for now.
Code: [Select]
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-imap --enable-pop --enable-smtp --with-homespool=/var/spool/
I've had a look through the mutt files after installing, and see that I have 3 extensions to release
mutt.tcz
mutt-doc.tcz
mutt-locale.tcz

I've been preparing lean extensions in what i think is the hard way, I install the package to /tmp/package and then remove what i don't need. If I'm releasing a core package, mutt for example, i'll remove the dir's that contain the doc and locale info. Then I run the relevant commands to make it into mutt.tcz
then I clean up the /tmp/package folder, and run the mutt installer again, to get the doc and locale files back. Then I'll remove everything except the docs, so i can make that into mutt-doc.tcz
Like i said its slow and dumb. Can someone tell me the smart way to do it ?

thanks.
Live long and prosper.

I'm not saying it is the samrt way, just the build script from 2010 to make previous version:

Thanks for your script bmarkus, I will study it.

I see you have a few different compile options which I will copy.
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-mailpath=/var/spool/mail --with-regex --enable-pop --enable-imap --with-ssl

I only just saw this post, as I was reading back over it, I never received an update when you posted on  March 13, 2012

Sorry about the delay finishing this, I ran out of time getting ready to travel overseas, and I've got some time to finish it now :)

I ran into a problem when running
$ make install DESTDIR=/tmp/package

With the following compile options.
Code: [Select]
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-mailpath=/var/spool/mail --with-regex --enable-pop --enable-imap --with-ssl --enable
-smpt

Code: [Select]
make[4]: Entering directory `/mnt/hdb1/mutt/mutt-1.5.21'
if test -f /tmp/package/usr/local/bin/mutt.dotlock && test -f /tmp/package/usr/local/bin/mutt_dotlock ; then    \
        rm -f /tmp/package/usr/local/bin/mutt.dotlock ;         \
        ln -sf /tmp/package/usr/local/bin/mutt_dotlock /tmp/package/usr/local/bin/mutt.dotlock ; \
fi
if test -f /tmp/package/usr/local/bin/mutt_dotlock && test xmail != x ; then \
        chgrp mail /tmp/package/usr/local/bin/mutt_dotlock && \
        chmod 2755 /tmp/package/usr/local/bin/mutt_dotlock || \
        { echo "Can't fix mutt_dotlock's permissions!" >&2 ; exit 1 ; } \
fi
chgrp: invalid group: `mail'
Can't fix mutt_dotlock's permissions!

Mail group doesn't exist.

..so either you need to create this group or modify mutt so that it accepts the tc default group "staff"

thx bmarkus and Juanito

Runing "sudo addgroup mail" before ./configure does the trick.

I'll package the extension and do some testing

Well, it is for compile time. What is about running mutt, is it necessary to have group mail and add tc to mail group? Just asking.

This is why I was suggesting to modify - if possible - mutt to work with group "staff" rather than group "mail".

I don't know if this is as simple as a ./configure switch or is more difficult than that..

I'm looking into making the default group staff, other general testing is going well.
