I think that the primary problem that I encountered (apart from the
latest version of the PINE 4.64 build for Debian, being for oldstable,
and not for stable, thence the problem with the ssl library version), is
a problem that I have with the mirrors for the Debian etch version, for
obtaining packages via the sources.list file, whence I obtain errors
every time I run Synaptic or apt, and can only download security
upgrades, and not additional packages, across the Internet.
I cannot get correct paths for the Australian mirrors for Debian, for
But, that is a Debian issue, and, not a PINE issue.
After reverting my sources.list file, thence being prompted for the
first installation DVD, where the required packages were found for the
ssl library version, I managed to instal the library, then managed to
instal PINE 4.64, and I have just worked out how to modify the Postfix
setup to allow mail to be sent from the new workstation, and, so, after
all of that (and buying many Postfix books to try to find how to add a
new computer, as it wasn't easy to find in the books), I seem to have
got it all working (especially if this message makes it to the mailing
list, as that should truly show that I can now send and receive messages
using this new computer). It took about 2 hours, to copy my mail
directory (du -h shows 5.8GB), using gFTP across a 10Mbps LAN.
Thank you for your help.
