Description Wouter Liefting 2001-06-05 14:52:36 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.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Vanilla 7.1 install
2.service innd start
3.
	

Actual Results:  Please run makehistory and/or makedbz before starting innd.

Expected Results:  INN started

Additional info:

Only on RH7.1. RH7.0 is not affected. Temporary workaround is to install INN from RH7.0

Need Help
Comment 2 Henri Schlereth 2001-06-20 14:53:42 EDT
Additional update: I followed the instructions in the NEWS file for makehistory
and makedbz and
inn will now start.
Comment 3 Florian La Roche 2001-06-29 05:18:18 EDT
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.

Thanks,

Florian La Roche

Could there be some more info on getting this to work.

An example?
Comment 5 Justin Albstmeijer 2001-07-25 07:20:27 EDT
Doing the following solved my startup problem:

edit /etc/news/inn.conf:

changed organization
added pathhost: localhost

touch /var/lib/news/history
makedbz -i
cd /var/lib/news
mv history.n.dir history.dir
mv history.n.hash history.hash
mv history.n.index history.index
chmod 664 history.*

Comment 6 Justin Albstmeijer 2001-07-25 07:25:25 EDT
chown news.news history*
