|Subject: (2.18) NOV problems on a Pyramid|
This applies only to Pyramid systems that run OSx. Newer systems run DC/OSx
and/or Sinix 5.43 which are "normal" SysV that have normal cronjobs.
Q: I just turned on the overview stuff and I don't think news.daily is
properly expiring the .overview files. I'm using a Pyramid.
A: Do you need quotes in your crontab entry? Look at your news.daily
report -- expire using "expireover delayrm" should take a few minutes.
If it takes longer than, say, 10-20 minutes, then the keywords aren't
being seen by news.daily so perhaps the commandline quoting is wrong.
i.e. you had:
su news -c /usr/lib/news/bin/news.daily delayrm expireoverYou should have:
su news -c "/usr/lib/news/bin/news.daily delayrm expireover"Without quoting, the options are thrown away and only the "news.daily"
