Hi,

I've justn moved out in 2.3.1 installtion over to use CNFS buffers instead
of tradspool. I've also changed the overview format from tradindexed to
buffindexed. Everything has been fine for two days, but now I get the
following NNRPD errors in news.err :

Jul  9 11:16:32 web3 nnrpd[24273]:  buffindexed: ovgroupmmap ovbuff is null(ovindex is 14966, ovblock
is 1684080945

null(ovindex is 20525,
ovblock is 1398081841

I'm also getting errors saying:

Jul  9 11:32:10 web3 innd: buffindexed: could not add overview for
'free.it.lavoro.indipendente'


However the overview buffers are not full.... inndf -o shows

> inndf -o
53 % overview space used

I have two buffindexed Overview buffers:

0:/usr/local/news/var/BUFFER_OV1:1880000
1:/usr/local/news/var/BUFFER_OV2:1048576

-rw-rw-r--   1 news  news   1925120000 Jul  9 11:31 BUFFER_OV1
-rw-r--r--   1 news  news   1073741824 Jul  9 11:31 BUFFER_OV2


I don't use mmap - as these are file's not raw partitions, but dd'd file's

Any ideas what this error means and how I can fix it?
There's nothing in the FAQ like it...

Thanks

Paul
