If you were running INN and wanted an eterna.xxx group then you'd be running
"ctlinnd newgroup eterna.xxx .. ...." and it would get created under
/var/spool/news/overview/.... if you had overview stuff.
well, it seems that INN has changed since i last looked. :-)
Doesn't look like it needs to do anything in /var/spool/news to me.
Maybe some other news package does? You should be able to tell us since
you came up with the idea that something does.
well, the INN i installed about 5 years ago did not have an
`articles' subdirectory, but put things directly into
/var/spool/news (or where ever).
as INN has changed, i withdraw my objections.
