|As with my other task today (a port scanner), I followed the
instructions found in the FreeBSD handbook
ports from the internet.
During the install, I received the following messages:
Installing fetchmail configurator...
env: python: No such file or directory
I examined fetchmail and found that I need python. Oh well, off to install python.
Well, that didn't work either. What went wrong?
It seems that this is a known problem. It tries to install use python, which
needs x-windows, but which isn't installed here.
So I went off and installed the package instead.
Well, I've downloaded that. No luck. Or rather, no instructions as to what
to do once you've untarred the file. Bummer that.
You have to do a pkg_add to install a package! After I did that, it was installed
and available for use. The next step is to configure it.
