Hi Gert,

Are you sure you want to run pullnews as root?
Why don't you use it with another user?  (yours, or the « news » account)

Could you please post the contents of ~/.pullnews to see whether it is right?

* Did you create the newsgroups you want to carry with INN?  (ctlinnd newgroup)

* Is incoming.conf allowing your pullnews feed?

* Do you have useful logs in /var/log/news/news and /var/log/news/news.notice
as for the articles pulled?
