That would be a hint that your fetchnews process hasn't completed and
hangs. I'd need a stack backtrace from the hanging process, see the FAQ
at http://leafnode.sourceforge.net/doc_en/FAQ.html#id2798364 for details.
You'll probably need to compile leafnode from source to achieve that
First check if you have a ~/.rpmmacros file (create an empty one if you
don't have it) and add this line:
optflags: i586 -O -g -march=i586
Then, download the .bz2 tarball and try
rpm -tb --target=i586 leafnode-1.10.1.rel.tar.bz2
(You may need to use rpmbuild instead if you have RPM 4.)
