sync changes nothing. When I login as root in another shell F1, about 20
KB of buffers are written, then buffer writing dies.

With 4 GB of RAM? I sure hope not! I even set Klipper to have 100 entries!
But it now that there's no more a setting for its buffer and I'm stuck
with pasting a max of ~20 lines!

So I installed clipman but, for now, it says there's another clipboard
application running, even I clicked Quit, do not restart and so on after I
removed the klipper icon. Then thingy won't die until I reboot I suppose.

Maybe but, for now, I can't help to wonder if that's not want prevents my
computer from going into suspend mode.

Yup! If it ever comes back to your mind...

Yes, but management takes some time... and expertise. So, as for myself,
KISS is my motto :)

Well, sending a test message to the group with a copy to myself from
altern, I suppose I'll find out the smtp server name, which is impossible
in altern's interface. As for the pop... there's a long list of headers.

I'll see.
