(linux/wine) just updated from beta 3 and nothing works

Puh,
I just updated from beta 3 and since then I'm stuck.
Beta 6 simply doesn't start downloading.

And the right mouse button doesn't work. At least it doesn't show a menu.

Can someone tell me where I can find the older beta versions?

I have to get back to a version that works.

Ubuntu with NL crashing. Reasons? How do I fix?

I have been using NL on wine for quite some time. I was very satisfied with the stability of the last 3.8 Beta versions. Meanwhile I upgraded to 3.9b2. By the time, Ubuntu went through the normal standard upgrading procedures for wine and the meanwhile 8.04 os, and all this went fine over the last y...

I am not a Mac expert, but maybe you should also consider some bridging mode /open ports stuff, depending on how you emulate windows.

As far as I see, the problem is that the virtual network interface (bridged mode) that vmware creates, runs in a restricted bridge mode (at least this is what the log says). I don't know how to switch this restricted mode to transparent.

Is it? Maybe you're right. I just wasn't aware that running newsleecher in a vmware environment on a vnc remotely accessed server was that exraordynary.

Anyway, SSL is a nesleecher feature, isn't it?

"Bot (x) disconnected from server: "news.giganews.com" 10053

I did a fresh installation of NL 3.9B5 on a "naked" Win XP Pro image". I am running Vmware6/linux with the download directory of the newsleecher program on a shared vmware folder mapped as a drive. I enter my license, my access data to the giganews searver, get a connect on demand, and when I press ...

[Wanted feature]: True "Export to file" "Import from file" f

I often download one of those "multiple million headers" from some newsgroups. The reason is that you sometimes have to look them up to search for something specific, if you either don't know exactly how it was uploaded or if you can't search it through the search engine due to thousands of similar ...

Don't think it has something to do with extract. I disabled Extract, unsubscribed all groups, just continuously downloading and it still runs out of memory after six or eight hours. Beta 5 doesn't. I am using an XP Prof image on Vmware 6 / linux. I reinstalled 3.9B5 on a fresh image, entered my giga...
