I am trying to configure innd on rhas3, having some issues.
 

[root at giant news]# rpm -q inn

inn-2.3.5-5

[root at giant news]#

 

[root at giant news]# /usr/lib/news/bin/makehistory

[root at giant news]# service innd start

Starting INND system:                                      [  OK  ]

[root at giant news]# service innd status

innd dead but subsys locked

[root at giant news]#

 

[root at giant news]# /usr/lib/news/bin/inncheck

/etc/news/expire.ctl:23: malformed line.

/etc/news/expire.ctl:30: malformed line.

 

Lines 23 and 30 are the /remember/:10 lines, checking man expire.ctl
shows the syntax is OK.

 

More....

 

8><-------

 

#  cases if you want to keep your history file smaller.

/remember/:10

##  Keep for 1-10 days, allow Expires headers to work.  This entry uses

##  the syntax appropriate when groupbaseexpiry is true in inn.conf.

*:A:1:10:never

##  Keep for 1-10 days, allow Expires headers to work.  This is an entry

##  based on storage class, used when groupbaseexpiry is false.

#0:1:10:never

/remember/:10

*:A:1:32:45

 

So at present I am at a loss as to why innd is failing to start, logs
show a few errors,

 

[root at giant news]# tail -10 news.crit
