I need some help guys. This is my very first news setup...so I am
I am running Red Hat 7.1 on a Athlon 1.3Ghz box. With inn-2.3.1
(default from Redhat install).
I am attempting to migrate our current mail from a Red Hat 7.0 box
(inn-2.2) with no luck. I figured if I installed the same RPM file and
copied /etc/news, /var/lib/news, and /var/spool/news over it should work
fine. However this was not the case. The system would core dump into
the articles directory and the process would not stay running.
I decided to upgrade to the new RPM and after much mucking around I am
finally able to get my innd process to keep running and provide news
support. However I found the reason I was having so many issues with it
running appears to have to do with something my incoming feed. Each and
everytime I start the process the system produces a core in articles and
nothing shows up in the logs. I have checked every log inside
/var/log/news and of course syslog with no clues. The only file
generated each time is a innfeed.status file in /var/log/news, however I
can not see any apparent problems inside of it. I am also not receiving
any error mail messages to either the news user or root.
