Re: [leafnode-list] Groupinfo file possibly truncated or damaged: 0 1 0 -x-

Having recently played with this file this is an educated guess at
something to try.

In my groupinfo file the first line ( from memory, current at work away
from Linux box ) is

3dfx.something.something 0 1 0 -x-

I'd try deleting your first line ( "cp groupinfo groupinfo.old" first )
and then see how you get on.

As a complete guess, do you think your news-server ( news.tin.it? ) has a
group called <space>, and so that's being written to the groupinfo file but
Leafnode isn't dealing with it?  Might be worth emailing news@xxxxxx with

BTW - I see you're on kernel 2.0.33, I'm told that the speed difference
between 2.0 and 2.2 kernels is very noticeable, should be worth upgrading. (
NOTE this is an aside, please don't post comments on Linux kernels to the
mailing list, I've used up enough bandwidth because I didn't upgrade tin as it
is ).
