Description Preston Brown 1998-11-09 06:10:07 EST
tin in its default configuration tries to read
usrr/lib/news/active, when a newsspool operation is
requested. This is incorrect, active is in /var/lib/news
under RH.
Comment 1 Preston Brown 1998-11-16 09:20:59 EST
this is correct.  I suggest that you make a symlink for now, but this
problem will be resolved in a future version of Red Hat Linux.  The
bug isn't severe enough to merit an update RPM.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-05-31 12:57:59 EDT
Fixed in tin-1.4_990517-1. Thanks for the report.

Ancient bug.  Works fine on RHEL4.
