Since you are using Xfbdev, it is possible you are missing one of the libX* extensions that
pan requires to work.
It could also be that pan requires some functionality provided by Xorg, but not by Xfbdev.
Thanks, have you used it ?
I can't remember the details of the needed setup procedure, but I'm
guessing it needs the SeverURL, UserID, Pswrd, and then each group
that you subscribe to, plus the previous lists of headers...etc....
So how would I retain all this info between power-down.
Aren't all the files holding this info just kept in RAM and thus lost
at power down?
