The instructions work for all versions of Fedora. The commands should be run
as root, or prefixed with
“dnf-plugins-core” will probably already be installed.
dnf install dnf-plugins-core
Package dnf-plugins-core.noarch is already installed, skipping. Dependencies resolved. Nothing to do. Complete!
Next, enable the NeoMutt COPR:
dnf copr enable flatcap/neomutt
You will be shown a warning, which you need to say yes to:
You are about to enable a Copr repository. Please note that this repository is not part of the main Fedora distribution, and quality may vary. The Fedora Project does not exercise any power over the contents of this repository beyond the rules outlined in the Copr FAQ at <https://fedorahosted.org/copr/wiki/UserDocs#WhatIcanbuildinCopr>, and packages are not held to any quality or security level. Please do not file bug reports about these packages in Fedora Bugzilla. In case of problems, contact the owner of this repository. Do you want to continue? [y/N]:
Finally, install the NeoMutt package:
dnf install neomutt
During the installation, dnf will ask you to verify the public key of the package. Check that fingerprint exactly matches the one shown below, then say yes. This step only has to be done once – for the first install.
Importing GPG key 0xFACB00B1: Userid : "flatcap_NeoMutt (None) <flatcap#NeoMutt@copr.fedorahosted.org>" Fingerprint: 654D 24A3 6315 9304 787B 8F9B FC43 0E26 FACB 00B1 From : https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/results/flatcap/neomutt/pubkey.gpg Is this ok [y/N]:
Well done! You’ve just installed NeoMutt.
An alternative way to install NeoMutt is to download the rpm directly from the server (and verify it using the public key).
gpg2 --with-fingerprint pubkey.gpg
pub rsa2048 2016-04-10 [SCEA] [expires: 2021-04-09] 654D 24A3 6315 9304 787B 8F9B FC43 0E26 FACB 00B1 uid flatcap_NeoMutt (None) <flatcap#NeoMutt@copr.fedorahosted.org>
Once NeoMutt is installed, it will be updated automatically when you perform system updates. You can make that happen sooner by running:
To completely remove NeoMutt from your system:
dnf remove neomutt dnf copr remove flatcap/neomutt
Repository successfully removed.
If, instead, you would like to downgrade to Mutt:
dnf install --allowerasing mutt
======================================================================== Package Arch Version Repository Size ======================================================================== Installing: mutt x86_64 5:1.8.0-1.fc25 updates 1.4 M Removing: neomutt x86_64 5:1.8.0-20170225.fc25 @flatcap-neomutt 7.6 M
These instructions will help you install all the dependencies you’ll need to build NeoMutt from the source code.
dnf install git dnf install gcc libidn-devel ncurses-devel slang-devel gettext-devel tcl tar dnf install docbook-dtds docbook-style-xsl libxslt lynx dnf install cyrus-sasl-devel gnutls-devel gpgme-devel krb5-devel notmuch-devel dnf install tokyocabinet-devel kyotocabinet-devel lmdb-devel
Now you can follow the guide for building NeoMutt.
These instructions will help you install all the dependencies you’ll need to debug NeoMutt.
dnf install cgdb dnf debuginfo-install bzip2-libs cyrus-sasl-lib glib2 gmime gmp gnutls gpgme dnf debuginfo-install keyutils-libs krb5-libs kyotocabinet-libs libassuan libblkid dnf debuginfo-install libcom_err libcrypt-nss libffi libgcc libgpg-error libidn dnf debuginfo-install libidn2 libmount libselinux libstdc++ libtalloc libtasn1 dnf debuginfo-install libunistring libuuid lmdb-libs lzo ncurses-libs nettle dnf debuginfo-install notmuch nss-softokn-freebl p11-kit pcre pcre2 tokyocabinet dnf debuginfo-install xapian-core-libs xz-libs zlib
Now you can follow the guide for debugging NeoMutt.
cgdb may suggest installing more debuginfo packages.
