Description David L. Crow 2010-05-27 02:55:34 UTC
Description of problem:
It appears that the inn's pathbin was changed from /usr/lib/news/bin to /usr/libexec/news in Fedora 13.  Unfortunately, many of the scripts and commands did not complete this transition.

Because of this, innd cannot start and the cron jobs fail.

I had to modify the following files after upgrade from Fedora 12 to Fedora 13:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): inn-2.5.1-3.fc13.i686

How reproducible: very

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Inspect the files listed above for the /usr/lib/news/bin path
Actual results:
The path is found.

Expected results:
The path should not be found, but /usr/libexec/news should be found instead.

Additional info:

Not sure if I should open another bug for this, but the permissions for /usr/share/doc/inn-2.5.1/ and /usr/share/doc/inn-2.5.1/samples/ are 040644 which is not so good for a directory.

Comment 1 Nikola Pajkovsky 2010-06-02 14:20:42 UTC
Thank you for your report. Here is a build with fixes. Could you please test it and let me know? If it will be every thing fine I will commit in into cvs and submit update.


Comment 2 H. Peter Anvin 2010-06-09 05:43:25 UTC
With the koji build I still get:

/usr/libexec/news/rc.news: line 161: /usr/lib/news/bin/innd: No such file or directory

... which of course should be /usr/libexec/news/innd.

/usr/libexec/news/innconfval outputs:

PATHBIN='/usr/lib/news/bin'; export PATHBIN;

Comment 3 Nikola Pajkovsky 2010-06-09 08:20:54 UTC
[npajkovs@redhat.com ~]$ /usr/libexec/news/innconfval -s | grep PATHBIN
PATHBIN='/usr/libexec/news'; export PATHBIN

You've only updated package, right? Could you please try remove all packages and install new one from koji? I have a bad feeling that update does not work well.

Comment 4 H. Peter Anvin 2010-06-10 04:46:20 UTC
It looks like the issue is configuration variables in /etc/news/inn.conf.  This is a highly complex configuration file which is likely to have been customized by the administrator.  As you can see below, there are options which I really need from my existing inn.conf, as well as those that need to be updated to deal with this change:

E.g. (-) is inn.conf (+) in inn.conf.rpmnew:

-organization:           "Zytor Communications"
+organization:           "A poorly-installed InterNetNews site"

-pathhost:               news.zytor.com
-pathnews:               /usr/lib/news
+#pathhost:               localhost
+pathnews:               /usr

-mailcmd:                /usr/lib/news/bin/innmail
+mailcmd:                /usr/libexec/news/innmail

-pathbin:                /usr/lib/news/bin
-pathcontrol:            /usr/lib/news/bin/control
+pathbin:                /usr/libexec/news
+pathcontrol:            /usr/libexec/news/control

-pathfilter:             /usr/lib/news/bin/filter
-pathhttp:               /var/log/news
+pathfilter:             /usr/libexec/news/filter
+pathhttp:               /var/lib/news/http

The newsfeeds file needs similar changes.

Comment 5 Nikola Pajkovsky 2010-06-10 08:22:06 UTC
So it seems I've fixed issue, but your configuration reminds from 2.5.1-3. I will push a new updates.
