Description odaf 2000-04-03 03:45:34 EDT
Trying to run /etc/rc.d/inet.d/innd produces nothing. The reason is that
in Red Hat 6.2 some files that in 6.1 were in /usr/lib/news are now in
/usr/lib. The innd script check the existence of /usr/lib/news and as it
doesn't exist in Red Hat 6.2 it don't run.

--- from /etc/rc.d/inet.d/innd ----
[ -d /etc/news ] || exit 0
[ -d /usr/lib/news ] || exit 0
[ -d /var/spool/news ] || exit 0


Removing the second check is enough to get the script running.

Finally, thanks for a good job, continue doing it please.
