Bug#4670: suck don't learn from history



Package: suck
Version: 3.2.1-1

Suck tries to read the history-file from the wrong directory,
as indicated from the following session with /usr/sbin/get-news:

--
basecamp# /usr/sbin/get-news

[...stuff removed...]

168 Articles to download
Deduping Elapsed Time = 0 mins 0.05 seconds
Deduped, 154 Items remaining, 14 dupes removed
Can not open /usr/lib/news/history, Skipping
Total Articles to Download: 154

[...more stuff removed...]
--

Suck will function but the history-file is not used.

I suggest that the definition of HISTORY_FILE on line 74 in 
suck_config.h is changed from "/usr/lib/news/history" to
"/var/lib/news/history".

think about us poor non-intel people, we never got a chance to
get used to the benefits of a MS-DOS environment :-)

it would make things easier for porting if the installation 
environment is something generic. use of initrd with a precompiled
generic kernel image just gives what we need. but of course the
ui should become more userfriendly.

with all the other points i agree. (me too, me too :-))
only one thing: this discussion is for debian-1.3, right?
