It was time for a total system overhaul again and so I decided to try out Debian this time. Went to university to burn myself a CD and ended up with a set of four (and these are only the binaries...). After screwing things up a bit, the system is now alive again. Just have to find a way to make exmh work with NFS mounted mailspools. In the meantime, I can at least access the mailbox readonly, using mutt.
