Linux newsgroup app


Recommended Posts

For generic newsreading I liked using PAN. They claim NZB support, but back when I was using it this didn't work particularly well. Of course, that's over a year ago. It doesn't help that this project releases INCREDIBLY slowly, so I'm not sure it's a good idea to recommend them still. Regardless, here's the URL: http://pan.rebelbase.com/

Another app that people appear to like is KLibido: http://klibido.sourceforge.net/

The NZB processing is a bit weak on Linux in my experience. Back in the day I used NZBGET (http://nzbget.sourceforge.net/) but the prog's bitchy about the nzb's format and I've been told that on modern machines it takes some effort to compile.

There's a program called NZBPOWER which is a QT4 app: http://www.nzbpower.org

The one that seems to get the most praise is HellaNZB http://www.hellanzb.com/trac/.

The last program I'd like to point your attention to is NNTPGrab: http://www.nntpgrab.nl.

I'm pretty sure some of those progs will tickle your fancy.
