It's one reason I don't do much trouble-shooting in linux threads because I just don't know. You're starting from a different baseline and I have no experience with Wine at all.

I've run many different configs with Newsbin, mostly without trouble, I can tell you right now that kernel versions and graphics hardware/driver combinations are not your enemy. It's mostly about wine, I'd upgrade it.
I'm running SUSE 11.4 on a fairly highend workstation, I've also run that config in a SUSE VM on Win7 without those sorts of problems.
DThor wrote:Not a clue. Do you need the par files? You know that v6 basically deals with all that, right? You shouldn't have to fiddle about with the order. If the post is incomplete and recent, by default Newsbin will wait for further posts. You can push it along if you think there's enough pars by Assemble Incompletes.
DThor wrote:I'm suspecting the very specific posts you're talking about have no pars, or no pars that are matching up with the primary file.
DThor wrote:Just a guess, but I'm betting this is one of those posts with a hundred files, not rars, and a parset for them. I'm unsure if Newsbin could ever work with those.
How could it possibly know that the foo.lit, bar.lit have anything whatsoever to do with the par files?
DThor wrote:Well, if you think about it, it can't know. It's trivial for par because by you having the par files downloaded in the same directory as the files and you run the util, it simply finds them there. You're intervening. It needs to open the par file and process it to do that. When there's just a crapload of differently named files on usenet and some par files, I'm unclear how Newsbin can know to connect them. At that point, it means doing exactly what you're doing. I don't think it's ever behaved differently, unless I'm missing something.
Quade will probably comment, he's away for most of the day.
