Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 43601
INN won't start even after running makehistory
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (Win95; I)
Description of problem:
Vanilla RH7.1 install. Trying to start innd with service innd start. Won't work, says "run makehistory and/or makedbz". Tried that with several
variations - doesn't work.
Bugzilla bug 27421 won't fix this.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Vanilla 7.1 install
2.service innd start
Actual Results: Please run makehistory and/or makedbz before starting innd.
Expected Results: INN started
Only on RH7.1. RH7.0 is not affected. Temporary workaround is to install INN from RH7.0
Have the same problem.
Additional update: I followed the instructions in the NEWS file for makehistory
and makedbz and
inn will now start.
INN is now much more flexable on how news articels can be stored and before
starting a news-server you have to change the configuration for this.
Please look into the news file for more information.

Could there be some more info on getting this to work.
Doing the following solved my startup problem:
added pathhost: localhost
mv history.n.dir history.dir
mv history.n.hash history.hash
mv history.n.index history.index
chmod 664 history.*
chown news.news history*
