a.copy $user.1 to the $home/lib/face directory.
cpu% mkdir $home/lib/face
2.Run faceoff. The faceoff updates are queued.

cpu% faces -i

9p mail

Enter upasname=$user@9p.sdf.org if it's not already in the $home/lib/profile, below the bind lines. Try 'sed 5q $home/lib/profile' to view the first 5 lines of $home/lib/profile. (Although unrelated, a Plan 9 VPS upas snippet is available for reference.)

Entering upasname=$user@9p.sdf.org (at the prompt) is optional if a $user chooses to edit the $home/lib/profile.

x upas/fs upasfs - mail file serverhttp://man.9front.org/4/upasfs
upas/fs :!: A user normally starts fs in his/her profile after starting plumber(4) and before starting a window system, such as rio(1) or acme(1).
cpu% upasname=$user@9p.sdf.org
xAdd upasname=$user@9p.sdf.org to the $home/lib/profile
xA default lib/profile example at the Boot Camp 9p resource page, with snippets/changes.
1.A checklist, or a possible task (a,b,c,d) order.
a.Is upasname=$user@9p.sdf.org in the $home/lib/profile ?
b.:!: Is upas/fs in the case cpu area of the profile, after plumber ?
c.Was there a Drawterm restart after a & b?
d.mail -c
i.If mail -c is not working: Such users have to ask nicely for someone to create the mailbox directory on the file system console.
ii.Option 1: rename $home/lib/profile so that it is not recognized, then reconnect with Drawterm -G and run mail -c. (untested) :!:
iii.Option 2: rename $home/lib/profile so that it is not recognized, then reconnect and run mail -c. (untested) :!:
iv.term% notes: Create $user /mail/box files with 'mail -c'.

cpu% grep upas/\fs $home/lib/profile

c:

d:

Create the /mail/box/$user with 'mail -c'. This is only necessary once; it creates the $user mbox.

cpu% mail -c

Note: manually editing the /mail/box/$user files may interfere with qer.

9p mail reference:

x qer qer, runq - queue management for spooled fileshttp://man.9front.org/8/qer
qer Qer creates a control and a data file in a queue directory. The control file contents consist of the tag, reply, and args separated by spaces. The data file contains the standard input to qer.

Start acme to access the mbox.
