Alpine Mail Client – packages for SPARC and x86

July 9th, 2008 by Andre van Eyssen

I’ve built packages for the replacement for PINE from UW. Alpine has removed some source constraints (important to some people, I guess), has some new features and otherwise seems to be an incremental upgrade on PINE. These packages were built on Solaris 10, so they should be fine on OpenSolaris / Nevada (Well, SXCE/SXDE) as well.

Alpine for SPARC (PCOWalpine)

Alpine for x86 (PCOWalpine)

Please let me know if there are any problems with these builds. Click here for more information about Alpine.

UPDATE: Packages rev’d to include -passfile by popular demand. Grab ‘em again. Read the README file.

    Do you know if the x86 alpine package build included the patch for maildir support (see http://staff.washington.edu/chappa/alpine/info/maildir.html)
    Thanks for providing the package.

    yeah, does it include the maildir patch?
