Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 596580
Migration from /usr/lib/news/bin to /usr/libexec/news is not complete
Last modified: 2014-02-02 17:14:39 EST
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
The path is found.
The path should not be found, but /usr/libexec/news should be found instead.
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.
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.
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.
PATHBIN='/usr/lib/news/bin'; export PATHBIN;
[email@example.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.
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"
The newsfeeds file needs similar changes.
So it seems I've fixed issue, but your configuration reminds from 2.5.1-3. I will push a new updates.
Sorry for the delay in testing the new packages, but I finally installed them this morning and it appears that all the issues are resolved.
