Description of problem:
I don't read news on my linux box, and I don't host a news server. But
every linux box I have is running the slrnpull command every day unless I
go in and nuke the files in cron.daily.
Is there an overwhelming reason why every Redhat installation must run
slrnpull daily? I dunno, maybe I am missing something....
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Wait a few days
3.Look at your log files for "su news" entries
Well, it might not help in all cases, but you can always uninstall the slrn-pull
Right, the script slrnpull-expire is copied to /etc/cron.daily by spec
only in the case that you have installed the slrn package. If you
don't use slrn, please don't install slrn on your system.
