Newsreader better than BNR2?
BNR2 seems to have a major flaw in database handling/management - as I've run it with many configurations on many distributions. If the app ever crashes or hangs for ANY reason, the next time BNR2 launches I get an error 'Cannot Open Database'. It's a simple fix to delete the database and let the software create a new one, but then I spend the next hour downloading hundreds of thousands of old headers and sorting out the old posts and reassembling the download queue.
I am desperate to find a more stable alternative. Something stable with a clean and simple GUI, that can assemble multi-part and yenc posts, and can sort downloads to varying directories automatically. The ability to post is a plus, but not required.
I'd really like to see an update to BNR2, but I'm tired of waiting for what looks like a dead project.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
