On the raspberry pi :
I have checked out tools, base, gui and back from GitHub. Built GNUStep just fine.
Built GNUMail version 1.2.3 just fine.

The missing text elements from message headers and mailbox list problems are gone. It is displaying everything correctly.
It was probably the version of GNUStep I was using on this platform. Funny, it only happened in GNUmail AFAIK.

Thanks for your help

0.24 is a bit old, we had 0.25 for quite some time and 0.26 is now just out (but cannot be build until we release also base.
However, I don't remember we fied such grave bugs, but maybe Fred or Ivan may remember better. In other words, I did not make changes into GNUMail from the times of 0.24 that should stop it working.

   - gcc-4.4                            4.4.7-4
   - make                            4.0-8.1
   - libff6                            3.1-2
   - libcairo2                            1.14.0-2.1+deb8u2

I think that is quite fine.

I have two ARM setups: A raspberry PI with NetBSD and a PI 3 with Raspbian like you.
However, on both I built GNUstep from source.
On both GNUMail displays fine.

I built the GNUMail version 1.2.3 from the webpage.
BTW is there a publicly available version control system with the code
(readonly) ?

There are only minor cosmetic fixes since 1.2.3 IIRC, however look here:


You can also just checkout frameworks/pantomime and apps/gnumail

I will uninstall all this and try to build from source, despite the problem
I found on debian 9 (intel), see my other email.

As said, I can build on Rasbian from scratch gnustep with GCC without issues.

You mentioned having a Mac, what OS? you can run gnumail on it. I can build GNUMail on 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6. I can run it on 10.7, but currently not build it, also I can build on 10.4 a 10.3 compatible version, but not build on 10.3... It runs perfectly both on PPC and Intel, so the code is reasonably portable, until it remains 32bit only, there is esplicit a block in pantomime against 64bit I have not investigated.

Thank for you interest


PS: yesterday I replied you from GNUMail on Gentoo, Today on 10.5 intel! Power of GNUMail!
I wonder, if you set it up, if you can send mails fine. I have certain issues on GNUstep which I do not have consistent on Mac.
