Description Preston Brown 1998-11-09 11:10:07 UTC
tin in its default configuration tries to read
usrr/lib/news/active, when a newsspool operation is
requested. This is incorrect, active is in /var/lib/news
under RH.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1998-11-16 14:20:59 UTC
this is correct.  I suggest that you make a symlink for now, but this
problem will be resolved in a future version of Red Hat Linux.  The
bug isn't severe enough to merit an update RPM.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-05-31 16:57:59 UTC
Fixed in tin-1.4_990517-1. Thanks for the report.
