INN won't start

I made a small change to newsfeeds, and now innd won't start (even after I
undid the change).

news.crit output follows:
Jul 12 10:10:42 reddwarf innd: SERVER cant bind RCreader Permission denied
Jul 12 10:11:48 reddwarf innd: SERVER bad_active ...
Jul 12 10:12:42 reddwarf innd: SERVER bad_active ...

Any ideas?

You need a separate software package such as 'suck' or 'newsx'.  See

Look at the documentation for readers.conf -- your configuration is not
doing what you want it to.  (If you can't figure it out, we're going to
need to see the non-comment portions of readers.conf.)
