recalling prev read articles in summary

Sorry if this is a FAQ...

How can I view previously read or expired articles
back into the summary if I've still got unread articles
there? (without having to catch up the current articles
and then go back in, which is what I've been doing)

Thanks!

gnus hangs when kerberos ticket expires


I am using Oot Gnus 0.07.

I connect to my IMAP server uses kerberos 5 authentication, as shown in the
following snip from my .gnus file.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
(setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
      '((nnfolder "private") 
        (nnslashdot "")
	(nnimap "ece" 
		(nnimap-address "email_server_address")
		(nnimap-list-pattern '("INBOX"))
		(nnimap-authenticator gssapi)
		(nnimap-stream gssapi)			
		)
	)
)
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

However, the problem is that every time when the Kerberos ticket expires,
gnus hangs, which is very annoying. 

Is there a way to let gnus to renew the ticket for me? Or must I write a
cron job to renew the ticket somewhere else?

TIA

OK.

1. Have you had a look at the logs in /var/log ?  Any mention of these
   posts there?

2. You have archiving switched on for outgoing posts - presumably the
   posts it the debian list end up there.  How about a specimen of all
   the headers from one which failed to get through?

3. Do you really want to specify your mail-host-address as your ISP's smtp
   server?  Seems odd to me, though I could be wrong.

4. What MTA are you using?  Anything in the log-files there?

If there is no sign of anything in any of these places, then maybe the
trouble is at the other end and it might be worth subscribing again ;-0
Certainly I read the Debian users list with Gnus here and have no
problems.

Persverance is worth it in this case!

gnus on windows2000


To my great regret I am forced to work on Windows for some
time.  I feel quite comfortable in the Unix - Linux - GNU
world and I carry over as much as I can, first and foremost
Emacs.  Since I know almost nothing about Windows, this
might be the easiest question to reply:

1. I grabbed a precompiled emacs-21.2 and installed on my
   Windows machine without problem.  It seems to work OK. 

2. I am now firing up Gnus just to receive this:

shell-command-to-string: Searching for program: no such file or directory, C:\PROGRA~1\RATIONAL\RATION~1\NUTCROOT\mksnt\sh.exe

Can someone tell me how to get over this? 

Thanks, 

Tamas

Maybe you have set the SHELL environment variable. If yes then emacs
tries to use this shell to launch other programs.

Yes, they only work with Oort. I do find / o and / E  more convenient
bindings, and they *seem* faster (that might be my imagination)/

Thank you.  Just to be sure before I do something that could make all
my mail inaccessible -- does the makefile have rules that migrate the
.newsrc-dribble, and who knows what else from the 5.9 format to the
oort format?

Thanks again.

The installation of some Rational product has most likely done this.

Likely contenders are Rose or ClearCase.

Tamas, for XEmacs you would set
Options->Troubleshooting->Debug on Error
Options->Troubleshooting->Debug on Signal
Options->Troubleshooting->Debug on Quit
then provoke the error again and send us the *Backtrace* buffer you
get.

It's got to be similar in GNU Emacs.

This will tell us more about the lisp packages involved in this.

I'd guess (from the date) this ChangeLog is for Oort (development
version of Gnus). But I can't find "%.0f" in gnus-uu.el (that's where
`gnus-uu-expand-numbers' is defined).

Please enable debugging with `M-x toggle-debug-on-error RET',
reproduce the error and post the backtrace. Or make a bug report using
`M-x gnus-bug RET' and include the backtrace in your report.

Bye, Reiner.

filling articles


The function gnus-article-fill-cited-article explicitly turns off
filladapt-mode.  However, I find that filladapt-mode works better for me
(e.g. it takes care of "bulleted lists", and it doesn't delete blank lines
between the comments from different posts).

What is the easiest way to get 'W w' to fill the article using filladapt
instead?  Or is there a better solution?

tia,
