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: (5.20) INND: PID file exists -- unclean shutdown!

This just means your machine crashed or you didn't shutdown innd
properly and THEREFORE rc.news is doing a bit of cleanup work before it
starts innd.

There is not much for you to do. You might run makehistory or fixhist.pl
to find articles that are on disk, but not in history.
