C-News expire problem

C-News expire problem

Post by Roger Die » Tue, 24 Jan 1995 03:41:23



I am using C-News and had very few problems, suddenly I started getting the
following message when doexpire runs at night:

expire problems:
expire: wrong number of fields in history

expire: wrong number of fields in history
        `Dec 28 19:30:26.000 rahul.net + <3dsos3$...'
expire: wrong number of fields in history
        `Dec 28 19:30:26.000 rahul.net + <3dssk1$...'
expire: wrong number of fields in history
        `Dec 28 19:30:26.000 rahul.net + <3dslrn$...'
expire: wrong number of fields in history
        `Dec 28 19:30:26.000 rahul.net + <3dssf3$...'
expire: wrong number of fields in history
        `Dec 28 19:30:26.000 rahul.net + <D1Jo51....'
expire: wrong number of fields in history

expire: no slash in article path `bit.listserv.po641'

I gather that something is wrong with the history file from the first 6
expire lines in the message but the last line seems to stop it from
actually expiring any of the newsgroups.

I looked in the explist and don't find any mention of
bit.listserv although it is a valid newsgroup on my system it expires
under "all".  Can someone tell me how to fix this?
