Simple news feed - setup

I have arranged for them to be feeding me the articles.

I thought that the serer that I receive the feed from creates the groups
for me? I assume the actsyncd is a daemon that runs which automatically
checkes the feed server for new groups?

Sorry, the log files were showing things, for example, the newsfeeds log
file was showing if I had a feed setup incorrectly etc.

Thanks in advace!

Have you arranged for them to feed you?

Well, you have to create the newsgroups, either manually with `ctlinnd`
in a more programatic fashion with `actsync` or `actsyncd` -- have you=20
done that?

Nothing at all?  I'd say your syslog configuration is broken, check the=20
instructions in the INSTALL file.
