I disremember just what I imagined that repo to be or do. Another subscriber told me exactly what to change, where, and how. I did, and Shazam! It began updating itself like a m*d b*st*rd, as we say in these here parts: a new kernel and 76 updates to installed packages. Whee! So then I started installing things I need (like Alpine and Pan), and that also worked -- double whee! -- as did scp over my LAN, to get .pinerc, .pan2, etc. Triple whee! Many many thanks to all! -- Beartooth Staffwright, Neo-Redneck Not Quite Clueless Power User Remember I have precious (very precious!) little idea where up is.
