5. What to do if things don't work...
Contents of this section
- 1. Check permissions. Go to
to news. Run
inncheck -perms and check to see if any
permissions need to be changed. DO NOT change the permission for
inndstart though-that will keep INND from loading. If you do change any
permissions, be sure to record each change you make, so you can
go back and change them earlier. If you get messages like this:
can't open file, make sure the news user has read or write access
to that file. As far as I know, all of the configuration files need to
be owned by news, and exist in the news group.
- 2. Make sure your feed is sending.
- 3. Look through the FAQ's. Lots of questions are answered in
there. I hope this primer has been useful. As far as I know, this text
only applies to the default INN distribution that comes with Red Hat Linux
2.1, and may not be pertinant to any other Linux distributions. If you
see any errors or omissions, feel free to point them out.
