    Any suggestions for a LINUX news client (USENET) that supports yenc?

    Well, I settled on Pan which is a pretty good clone of Agent.

    This looks to be the Linux equivalent to Agent so I am very interested in this piece of software.

    How did the install go???? Which version of KNOPPIX are you using?

    Did you use the one from the apt-get sources or a source install?

    The reason I ask is the need for the various GNOME libraries for this software to run.

    Thanks.

    I just downloaded the .deb and installed it. Worked right off the bat and any dependent files you might need are right there on the download page, but I didn't need them. Pan works great and handles binairies very well, which makes this J-Pop fan very happy.


    -edit:

    Ooops! The Knoppix version I am using is the 3.2 060603 version.

    Works great

    PAN has worked very well everytime I've used it in the past. apt-get pan or goto the homepage.
