Thanks - it really did help me
But I have another trouble
I can connect to my news server (it's started) but I cannot see any
group in it!
There are several groups that should be created with installing inn
And I see them in my active file
control 0000000000 0000000001 n
control.cancel 0000000000 0000000001 n                                                                   
control.checkgroups 0000000000 0000000001 n                                                              
control.newgroup 0000000000 0000000001 n                                                                 
control.rmgroup 0000000000 0000000001 n                                                                  
junk 0000000000 0000000001 n
But when I try to connect using my news client i can't get list of
these groups (I tried Netscape, Outlook), several PC's with these clients
I see no groups :(
inncheck gives no errors, news.cri, news.err, news.err are empty
i can see in my processes list following lines with news owner
news     27007  0.0  2.2  6264 2816 ?        S    21:30   0:00 /usr/local/news/bin/innd -p4

news     27167  0.0  0.2  1268  360 pts/0    S    21:31   0:00 sleep 600
Could these be because of I have changed my source file
(include/config.h)
from
#define HAVE_DB1_NDBM_H 1
to
/* #define HAVE_DB1_NDBM_H 1 */
or else I could not successfully do "make"
