The log excerpt is too short to get useful info out of it; however, Jörg
Dietrich had made a patch for 2.0b8 to get local newsgroups working (it
lacked the creation of group directorys), that may be what you're
running into (it's just a guess however), I keep a copy of his mail
including the patch at:


1. Download dietrich-2.0b8-fix-localpost.patch

   optionally, review that file with the "more" or "less" command or
   your favourite text editor in read-only-mode, it's plain text

2. cd to your leafnode 2.0b8 source code directory

3. patch -p0 </where/you/downloaded/dietrich-2.0b8-fix-localpost.patch

4. make

5. as root, make install
