[leafnode-list] Reading newsgroups descriptions failed



Hi

I have just installed  leafnode 1.9.2    from a binary rpm package but
am having trouble getting it to
fetch news groups:

Ive set  the permissions  and ownership  in /var/spool/news to ...

drwxr-sr-x   7 news     news         1024 Apr  3 18:43 news/

I believe that I have leafnode news server working correctly:

telnet localhost 119

Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
200 Leafnode NNTP Daemon, version 1.9.2 running at localhost

I have nodesc = 1 in the config file

But when I try to use fetch I get the following errors:
bash$ /usr/sbin/fetch -fvvvv

1.9.2: verbosity level is 4

Trying to connect to news.u-net.com ... connected.
Getting all newsgroups from news.u-net.com
Reading newsgroups descriptions failed.
uk.comp.os.linux not found in groupinfo file
Disconnected from news.u-net.com.

With these lines logged to messages
Apr  3 20:32:10 localhost fetch[488]: unable to open lockfile: 2 No such
file or directory
Apr  3 20:32:10 localhost fetch[488]: config: server is news.u-net.com
Apr  3 20:32:11 localhost fetch[488]: connected to 195.102.240.37: 200
Apr  3 20:32:12 localhost fetch[488]: Reading newsgroups descriptions
failed
Apr  3 20:32:12 localhost fetch[488]: uk.comp.os.linux not found in
groupinfo file

Any ideas what I am doing wrong????

Regards Jim skelton
