Description Kenn Humborg 2000-05-08 19:42:48 EDT
I'm running sendbatch as root from /etc/cron.d as

   10 * * * * root sendbatch -c otherhost | grep -v "No articles"

Normally, the sendbatch script flushes INN's out going stream
to otherhost and appends /var/spool/news/outgoing/otherhost
to /var/spool/news/outgoing/otherhost.uucp.  Then it runs
batcher to send the listed articles to otherhost.  When batcher
completes, it re-writes otherhost.uucp to only contain articles
which were not sent successfully, so they will be retried later.

This worked fine for my under RH5.2.  Now, however, batcher
always rewrites otherhost.uucp identically, thus causing
outgoing articles to be sent multiple times.  The articles are
going into the UUCP queue fine - uustat -a shows me that.

UUCP and INN packages are as shipped with RH6.2.
Comment 1 Florian La Roche 2000-05-19 12:29:59 EDT
can you please check if inn-2.2.2-5 from the next rawhide release has
this fixed?

Comment 3 Kenn Humborg 2000-05-23 03:59:59 EDT
I will check the Rawhide release as soon as I get a chance (probably Wed/Thurs
evening).  Kenn
Comment 4 Kenn Humborg 2000-05-24 19:05:59 EDT
Downloaded inn-2.2.2-5 from Rawhide, but it requires an updated glibc.  So I
downloaded the rawhide glibc as well and that will require me to upgrade
a _lot_ of other stuff.  Not nice over a 28.8k modem :-(

I'll --rebuild the inn SRPM tomorrow night and see how that goes.
Comment 5 Kenn Humborg 2000-05-25 20:14:59 EDT
Rebuilding and installing inn-2.2.2-5 from Rawhide fixed the problem.

Comment 6 Kenn Humborg 2000-05-26 06:10:59 EDT
A new problem... inn-cron-rnews now contains:


   /sbin/chkconfig innd && su - news -c /usr/bin/rnews -U

This should be

   /sbin/chkconfig innd && su - news -c '/usr/bin/rnews -U'
