I've run 4 wheezy installs here for several years, and have never had a 
root pw set.

A problem I have not had since ext4.  But now I'm getting touchy about it 
because amanda will not build on stretch.  So I've no backups. Using the 
stretch version is a huge backup, to 3.3.9 when my stuff is setup to 
wrap 3.5.1.  And even 3.5.1 can be as buggy as august roadkill that 4 
days old. Amanda I'm sorry to say, has been sold to Betsol, who may have 
to be sued for putting gpl'd code behind a paywall.

I did get the sound working, so now my list of stretch don't works is a 
little shorter. My next step is to edit my .procmailrc and disable the 
calls to clamscan as its occasionally locking up at 100%.

Doing that I logged a strange message in the term screen:
gene@coyote:~$ geany .procmailrc

** (geany:17281): WARNING **: Couldn't register with accessibility bus: 
Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application 
did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, 
the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

What the heck is that all about???  And how do I fix that??


Cheers, Gene Heskett
