[leafnode-list] fetchnews: stale lockfile, articles not updated, servers skipped
Running leafnode on a Debian/woody intel system w/ 56k dailup
connection. Version 1.9.11, installed from Debian package
I've been having trouble getting fetchnews to update news groups lists
from three servers I use, to update articles from these groups, and
there appears to be a problem in running fetchnews which leaves a
lockfile behind though the process itself has terminated.
A typical session might look like:
[root@navel:/root]$ fetchnews -vvv 2>&1 | tee fetchnews.log
Removing stale lockfile.
1.9.11: verbosity level is 3
Trying to connect to nntp.ix.netcom.com ... connected.
Getting all newsgroups from nntp.ix.netcom.com
Read server info from /var/spool/news/leaf.node/nntp.ix.netcom.com
I have two additional server stanzas, which don't appear to be getting
accessed at all:
## This is the NNTP server leafnode fetches its news from.
## You need read and post access to it. Mandatory.
server = nntp.ix.netcom.com
server = forum.linuxworld.com
server = news.vmware.com
/var/spool/news/leaf.node/nnpt.ix.netcom.com is a zero-byte file.
Any information would be appreciated.
