From the cache pages it looks for the things online, coming up with messages like http://www.somesite... not found.

I'm running Debian Potato, if that's any help
Tried all that, wwwoffle said it was offline already and joining the group www-data didn't have any effect.
Then tried installing htdig and apache to see if htdig would allow me to search the cache without having to open each of the randomly named files, and apache because dselect suggested it.
Then I reread the README.Debian and thought that I should try changing the wwwoffle port to 8080 instead of 8081. I tried changin the wwwoffle.conf file, then it said it couldn't connect to localhost:8081. Then I figured the easiest way to reconfigure it would be to uninstall wwwoffle and reinstall again. That didn't work either. Then I thought I'd try uninstalling, reinstalling again but this time delete all the wwwoffle files it said it couldn't delete the first time round. Now it doesn't want to configure wwwoffle because it can't find the old wwwoffle.conf because I deleted it.
Any clues as to what to do next?
PS. /dev/dsp permission denied keeps popping up now and then, eg. when mutt opens an attachment. Is this to do with the sound card not working?
Plus, is there a way to specify a default Replyto address for mutt? And change the default From address from my login name to my email address?
