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: (5.31) syslog: nntpd[13]: cant open ...../subscriptions ...

This is a new option in unoff4. First look if _PATH_NNRPSUBS is
correctly set. If yes, then just fill it with information ...
The subscriptions file contains what the NNTP "LIST SUBSCRIPTIONS"
command returns. Some newsreaders, such as tin, use this command
to get a default set of groups that people are subscribed to if
they do not have a .newsrc. If you don't want to use it, there are
no side-effects that I know of beyond the messages in your log.
