nn installed, but where is nnmaster
ii nn 6.5.1-7 Heavy-duty USENET news reader
nn package broken?
leafnode is installed and works fine,
read my news with gnus, read my news with lynx,
even read them news with $ telnet localhost nntp
but then I decided to convert to another newsreader,
and really would like to give nn a try.
could not fetch active file
( the same goes for any option, even for $ nn --help )
A strace on nn informes me:
open("/var/lib/news/active", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such
file or directory)
The documentation explains about a database, how nnmaster maintains it,
and it explains about an active file.
The nnmaster (8) manpage was installed
( in accordance to /var/lib/dpkg/info/nn.list ),
I change to root:
nn nncheck nngrep nnpost nntidy nnview
there seems to be no nnmaster programm:
not in the nn-package
not anywhere else on my potato cds
( checked the Contents-i386.gz file directly on the
not on my system
didn't make me any wiser.
How could it be, what's wrong?
