Back on Jan 4, I upgraded to 917 using EasyInstall.

Since then, my system has not processed a single incoming network packet. The networking sessions are functioning, but there are currently just shy of 15000 files in my network/spoolin directory.

I'm a little concerned.

Follow up...my citadel log has a ton of these messages:

Jan 18 15:58:01 burgers citserver[26794]: /usr/local/citadel/network/spoolin//#022: No such file or directory

And not long after I attempted to run EasyInstall again (of course, nothing installed), I started seeing this, too:

Jan 18 15:59:22 burgers citserver[26794]: msgbase: message 0 appears to be corrupted

Good news is that outgoing messages are processing and going out (new message arrived in IGnet Unlimited).

Just curious here - does this mean it got resolved?

No...due to lack of traffic other than myself and that when I move, I will no longer have static IP at my disposal, I'm planning to shutter my BBS.

You don't need a static IP on your home Internet connection.

I use a $4.49/month VPS account and route the traffic through a tunnel
to my trusty old home server.

True...but, as I noted, I get no traffic, other than networking from Uncensored! and some RSS feeds.

I've been running this way for a long while, now. If I thought there was any expectation of getting traffic to my BBS, I'd look at it differently, but at this point, I'm not, so I'm shutting her down.

Does citadel have file upload/download features? How can one access/use them? I think they are not mentioned in citadel faq. Doesn't matter if they are not integrated to chat.

How do uploaded files work? Can they be hot visualized without downloading?

Ok, nevermind the above

In order to use the wiki function, should it be a default "room" already existing, or must one create it?

Disappointing to hear, but I do hope you'll remain engaged in our community via Uncensored.

I haven't wanted to say this, but you're the only reason I was keeping the networking functions in the software anyway. I could potentially strip thousands of lines of code from Citadel by removing it. I don't think anyone else is using it. Networking will eventually rise from the ashes in the form of bidirectional NNTP, at which point we'll be able to network with lots of different software, not just other Citadel sites.

Obviously if there's anyone out there who was still using Citadel-to-Citadel room sharing, let me know.

Subject: Citadel & Modems

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi Folks - I have Citadel running in the lab, and have a question:  Anyone still have a modem pool in use?  

I was considering connecting my two antique computers (TRS-80 M3 and a C64) to the citadel install via modem.  Modems would connect via an Avaya TDM PBX (no SIP involved) so it should work.

 

I'm stumbling through the docs trying to figure out the citadel modem part

That's a really cool sounding project. 99% of the work will not be done within Citadel, even if Citadel is the primary application to which you want your retro computers to connect.

The trick is to make your Linux system answer connections on the modem lines.
To do this you have to set up a "getty" program to answer incoming calls on the modem. The most popular getty for Linux and standard modems is called "mgetty". You can do a web search for that program and there are plenty of tutorials out there.

Once a modem user connects to your Linux system, they will get a "login:" prompt, just like on the system console. You can either put a banner telling users to log in as a specific user (such as "bbs") to start Citadel, or you can configure mgetty to go directly into Citadel, in the same way modern systems send telnet connections directly into Citadel.

Have fun with your project!

There are many different kinds of rooms you can create. Wiki is one of them.
So yes, you have to create a new room, and configure it as a Wiki at creation time.

Citadel

1. Edit your site configuration and set the FQDN of your server to an appropriate name
2. Edit your Citadel server's Internet configuration and enter the domain(s) at which you plan to receive mail
3. Configure your domain's DNS to point the MX records to your Citadel server.

That's about it.

Subject: citadel refuses to start after OpenSuSE upgrade - cursor still in prog

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hello,

I just upgraded my openSuSE Server from 13.1 to LEAP 42.3 ... yes, I know I'm skipping several versions, but I managed to get all services running again except citadel.

citserver is exiting with this error:

cursor still in progress on cdb 04

Here is the complete log:

I'm using citadel-8.24-12.2.x86_64
MariaDB 10.0.32

Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards,
