INN FAQ Part 5

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: (5.12) "cant fopen <newsgroup>/.thread No such file or directory"

Q: nnrpd logs "cant fopen <newsgroup>/.thread No such file or
directory" hundreds of times a day although I installed trn-3 and
maintain an overview database. Why doesn't trn use overview files
instead of mthreads data?

A: trn-3 tries to open .thread files (or use XTHREAD) first because
$spooldir/db.init still exists. Delete it.
