INN FAQ Part 3

NOTE: The maintainers of the INN FAQ stopped publishing in December 1997.
An important update to this topic is provided by Mib Software in the Usenet RKT for Subscribers.

Subject: (3.5) syslog message: ME internal no control and/or junk group

You must have a newsgroup named "control" and a newsgroup named
"junk" for innd to start. Since innd isn't running, you can edit
the active file directly

Add these lines:

control 0000000000 0000000000 y
junk 0000000000 0000000000 y


Also make sure that the directories in the spool either don't exist or
are writable by the news user.
