90 <note>
91 <para>This version of <application>Mutt</application> is a development
92 release. The BLFS staff has determined that it provides a stable
93 program and fixes two issues in the current stable version of
94 <application>Mutt</application>: a segmentation fault that occurs under
95 certain conditions and a compilation problem when building with
96 <application>GCC-&gcc-version;</application>. To find the current
97 stable release, please refer to the
98 <ulink url="http://www.mutt.org/">Mutt home page</ulink>.</para>

101 <!-- [ag]
102 This got fixed with http://dev.mutt.org/hg/mutt/rev/fe615fd5e0de
103 which closed #2911 in mutt's tracker.
104 I have no gnutls to test. I will comment out the note for now and keep an
105 eye for any reports.
106
107 <caution>
108 <para>If you choose to link <application>Mutt</application> against
109 <xref linkend="gnutls"/>,
110 you won't have SSL client certificate support. Specifically the
111 <envar>ssl_client_cert</envar> configuration variable is recognized
112 as invalid. That means you will lose the ability to use
113 <command>mutt</command> via SMTP over TLS or in the case when
114 a client certification is required for authentication on an IMAP server.
115 For these reasons it is recommended to link <application>Mutt</application>
116 against <xref linkend="openssl"/> if you want SSL/TLS support.</para>
117 </caution> -->
118
119 <para><application>Mutt</application> requires a group named
120 <systemitem class="groupname">mail</systemitem>. You can
121 add this group, if it does not exist, with this command:</para>
122
123<screen role="root"><userinput>groupadd -g 34 mail</userinput></screen>
124
125 <para>If you did not install an MTA, such as <xref linkend="postfix"/> or
126 <xref linkend="sendmail"/>, you need to modify the ownership of
127 <filename class="directory">/var/mail</filename> with this command:</para>
128
129<screen role="root"><userinput>chgrp -v mail /var/mail</userinput></screen>
130
131 <para>Install <application>Mutt</application> by running the following
132 commands:</para>
133
134<screen><userinput>./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
135 --with-docdir=/usr/share/doc/mutt-&mutt-version; \
136 --enable-pop --enable-imap \

138 --without-gdbm --with-bdb &amp;&amp;
139make</userinput></screen>
140
141 <para>If you have the necessary dependencies installed and would like
142 to rebuild the HTML documentation, issue the following commands:</para>
143
144<screen><userinput>make -C doc clean &amp;&amp;
145make -C doc</userinput></screen>
146
147 <para>To generate the PDF manual with <xref linkend="jadetex"/>, run
148 the following command:</para>
149
150<screen><userinput>make -C doc manual.pdf</userinput></screen>
151
152 <para>This package does not come with a test suite.</para>
153
154 <para>Now, as the <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user:</para>
155
156<screen role='root'><userinput>make install</userinput></screen>
157
158 <para>If you generated the PDF manual, install it and the source TeX
159 file by issuing the following command as the
160 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user:</para>
161
162<screen role='root'><userinput>install -v -m644 doc/manual.{pdf,tex} \
