Heck, I created an empty groupinfo, and texpire just gives me seg faults
and dumps "erased state pid" messages in /var/log/news/news.notice. but
the lock file persists in /var/lock/news/fetchnews.lck.  If I check to 
be sure the process is not active, delete the file, and run texpire
again, it seg faults and leaves the fetchnews lock file there.

telnet localhost 119 gives the proper response.

But I can't get any local groups to configure.  I've made sure news:news
ownership is on the local.groups and groupinfo files.  /var/spool/news
contents looks right to the unpracticed eye.

When I try to connect and get a list of groups with my client, in 
news.notice I get:

local  host: krayp120.worldnet.att.net:119 (
cannot get hostname: no such host (h_errno=1)
remote host: (

# hostname

I have left server = news.hiof.no in the config file because I don't
have or want access to an internet server.  This worked before...

Maybe I'll go back and try a make install and see if it works better,
or try the rpmbuild on the leafnode-2.0.0.alpha20021229a tar ball
because that one worked with make install.
