|Subject: (7.7) Expire reports "Can't replace history files, Cross-device link"|
If your directory where your history is does not have enough space left
for two copies of the history, you can also expire in another directory.
But you must tell expire to do so - failing to do so produces the above
message. You can either tell it news.daily by adding a expdir=/some/dir
flag or by adding the -d flag when starting expire. In news.daily,
there is a variable called 'EXPDIR' which you can set. This way you
never accidentally run an news.daily by hand and forget the expdir option.
