Description mwise 1999-12-21 18:34:21 EST
running /etc/rc.d/initd/innd failed to start the news server after an
upgrade from Red Hat 5.2. Needless to say, the server did not start on

On examination, the script includes the line
su - news -c ". /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions ; daemon /etc/rc.d/rc.news"

creating a link to rc.news as /etc/rc.d/innd and changing the line to

su - news -c ". /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions ; daemon /etc/rc.d/innd"

seems to start the server.

Will be fixed in inn-2.2.2-2, which will be in the next rawhide release.
