Description Han-Wen Nienhuys 1999-05-19 09:25:09 UTC
When posting trn (the Pnews program
needs /usr/lib/news/inews), but that lives under /usr/bin

Screen shot
  Check spelling, Send, Abort, Edit, or List? s
  /usr/bin/Pnews: /usr/lib/news/inews: No such file or

have inn installed.

  Check spelling, Send, Abort, Edit, or List? s
  Cannot open /etc/news/inn.conf

dependencies set
