Thanks.  I used an identical file structure, and the same version of the 
software (1.9.19.)  It came across perfectly, even though I was copying from 
a backup on my Windows partition.  (I have only yesterday managed to mount 
the old Linux partition.)  I didn't have the permission problems that Bob 
mentioned.

Doug.

Just had an email from NTL. The problem is fixed if anyone wants to use this 
server.

New 2.0 snapshot (alpha, 2.0b8_ma10pre3.2) available


Hello,

I just released another alpha-quality snapshot of the 2.0b series. It
bears the version 2.0b8_ma10pre3.2. The version string is extremely
ugly, and there will be no 2.0b8_ma10pre4, but it will be 2.0b9 instead.

Anyhow, one month after the last snapshot, here's a new one. Not
extensively tested, please send feedback if anything is broken.

Get it from:

http://leafnode2.home.dhs.org/
http://mandree.home.pages.de/leafnode/beta/

Some days ago, I gave write access to my CVS tree to Ralf Wildenhues to
simplify our work. No more "Ralf Wildenhues:" tags under my email
address :-)

Here's the ChangeLog excerpt, listing changes since 2.0b8_ma10pre3.1:

2002-05-05  Matthias Andree <matthias.andree@...>

	* TODO: stricter Message-ID checking is now in place.  Done: "add
	COPYING".
	* autobootstrap.sh: Note that this file is public domain.
	* nntpd.c: More anal Message-ID domain part checking: reject posts
	without domain part, with unqualified domain part or with domain
	part that looks local.

RE: New 2.0 snapshot (alpha, 2.0b8_ma10pre3.2) available

Okay, I went and installed this new snapshot and the install went fine.
This is on a Redhat 7.1 system.  I ran fetchnews, and that worked with
no problems.  I started up Tin, and that worked with no problems.  I
started up Agent, and ran a Get New Headers, and the server keeps
unexpectedly quits on the same newsgroup.  What can I do to see what it
is dying on?

Thanks,
Jeff

What commands does Agent use to retrieve headers? Anything in the news
log? If not, retry with debugmode=128 in your leafnode config file.

Then run leafnode under gdb, for example:

gdb /usr/local/sbin/leafnode
run
repeat the command that crashes (GROUP, XOVER, whatever)
when it crashes (gdb writes about SIGSEGV or something), do a "bt full".

BTW, please do not quote /full/ ChangeLogs, but only relevant parts.

Oh heck, I don't know.  I just ran a retrieve new headers in Agent this
morning, and now it worked with no problems.  If I have the problem
again, I will do what you recommend below.

Okay, it is happening again to me.  It is not always the same newsgroup
either, very strange.  Here is the output that you requested.  I hope I did
it correctly.

really dumb question

I've been using leafnode with gnus for years.

I've moved from xemacs/gnus to Entrouage on OS X. What do I put in for news
server in Entourage? I've tried localhost and powerbook.oodudes.com (that's
what $HOSTNAME returns). Entourage can't get a listing of the groups.
