I vaguely remember there was once a problem with that date. So can you please 
try again with a recent version of ELOG?

  141   Tue Sep 24 17:24:46 2002 Idea Stefan Rittstefan.ritt@psi.ch   New elogd.cfg for this site
Since the way ELOG works has changed in version 2.2.0 (show message list as 
default view), the configuration file elgod.cfg for this site became 
slightly simpler. The usual "Start page = ?cmd=Search" is not necessary any 
more due to the changed default view. The commands displaying the last x or 
last x days of messages are still working, but depreciated, since the "Show 
last xxx" facility takes care of that. The default menu commands have been 
change which reflect the modified default view. The single elog page now 
has a "back" link instead the find result page.

Here is the updated version:

I added this option, so now you can specify in the [global] section of 
elogd.c something like

charset = windows-1252

To switch to Cyrillic. The modification will be contained in the next version 
of elog (2.2.3), and is now available from the CVS repository at:

On our:
   SunOS operator 5.8 Generic_108528-13 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10

I get:

% make
gcc -g -O -o elog elog.c

 symbol                             in file

I have no idea what is going on here
  157   Thu Nov 14 12:16:49 2002 Question Willem KosterW.Koster@rc.rug.nl   Show all entries made by ME ?
In my bottom.html file I have:

<A Href="host/Forum/?mode=summary&reverse=1&npp=10&Status=Open">Open</A> 
<A Href="host/Forum/?mode=threaded&reverse=1&npp=10&Status=
Open">(Threaded)</A> /                                                   
  <A Href="host/Forum/?mode=summary&reverse=1&npp=10&Status=C
losed">Closed</A> /  
<A Href="host/Forum/?mode=summary&reverse=1&npp=10">All</A>
<A Href="host/Forum/?mode=threaded&reverse=1&npp=10">(threaded)</A> 
tickets.

This sort of implements some of the buttons you have in your whishlist.

This works, because it is the same for all users, now what I would like 
is to add some sort of linke that will "show all entries from ME". I 
could do this on a per user basis, but that's not what I want, Something 
general with $user would be preferable.

Something like:

http://midas.psi.ch/elogdemo/Forum/?mode=threaded&reverse=1&npp=8&Author=$user

Is this possible ?

From: http://elog.sourceforge.net/

Solaris

It was reported by Martin Huber that under Solaris 7 following command must 
be used to compile elog:

gcc -L/usr/lib/ -ldl -lresolv -lm -ldl -lnsl -lsocket elogd.c -o elogd

It was also reported that the keep-alive mechanism is not working under some 
Solaris systems, so you need to start the elogd server with the "-k" flag to 
turn keep-alives off. 



Yep... does the job.
