I tried that offline.  I expected a "could not connect" message anyway.

I had to put ./ before "fetchnews" .  The result was:

[root@dougshost sbin]# LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib ./fetchnews -vv
2.0b8: verbosity level is 2
Trying to connect to news.ruralnet.net.au ... failed.
Segmentation fault
[root@dougshost sbin]#  

That seems to have fixed the library problem, although putting it in 
/etc/ld.so.conf doesn't seem to work for some reason.  Running ldconfig took 
a few seconds, with no output..  My computer does 
strange things occasionally, and seems to be getting worse by the day.  I 
suppose that I could put the above line in a 
script file.

I shall be away for the next few days.  Unfortunately, while I know my way 
around a directory, etc., and i actally prefer working from a terminal, I 
don't know the finer points of Linux, such as ldconfig.  

I have an older version of xinetd, so I am using the original entry as given 
on the Web FAQ.
