flnews is a client with graphical user interface to read USENET newsgroups. It is intended for POSIX compliant operating systems running the X window system. The main development goals are (in order of importance): - No bloat - Support for old workstations - Standard compliance - Be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others - Compatibility with other newsreaders - Usable X display redirection via network (or ssh tunnel) - Warn users about things that are not forbidden but considered "bad practice" Features that are currently not implemented (or not usable yet): - UUCP - Multiple servers - Offline mode (for network connection via dialup line)
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
Problem reports, updates or suggestions for this package should be reported with send-pr.
