    Upgrading Fetchmail


    I use fetchmail version 6.2.4 on Mandrake 9.2 but want to have it upgaded to version 6.3.6. This I did but it never worked.
    How else can I go about it and what dependencies do I have to install

    Thanks.

    The best advice would be to update your system to Mandriva 2007 so you are not constantly fighting the update battle.

    If you can't do that, you could download a generic RPM from the fetchmail download page, or if that fails, download the source code and build it.

    I've never compiled fetchmail since I've always installed the RPM, but you can probably use the standard formula, which would be something like this. (It would be good to uninstall the existing RPM first.)
    Code:
    tar xfj fetchmail-6.3.6.tar.bz2
    cd fetchmail-6.3.6
    ./configure
    make
    make install
