1. INN 1.4 for Linux: patch + config kit available

I've made a patch + config kit for INN 1.4 to get it to run on Linux.

It can be found at:

Here's the README:

INN 1.4 for Linux

Based on patches for INN 1.3 posted by Dave Gymer.

After seeing lots of requests for INN on Linux I decided to make a patch kit
with config files.

It only deals with getting INN 1.4 to run on Linux, not how to configure and
use it as you can find that information at other places.

NOTE: and site/* files are the files *I* use. You certainly have
to edit them for your setup. *** Please read the INN manuals. ***

I only use a UUCP link to a host named svin09. News is batched by using the

        send-uucp svin09

I use NOV for use with trn 3.0. It's in my newsfeeds file.

INN depends heavily on a good /bin/sh substitute. I use a beta version of
bash 1.13.  bash 1.12 gives some small problems with newgroups not being
handled correctly (maybe some other problems too, I don't remember).

Discussions about this Linux port: comp.os.linux or email to me.

Questions about configuration:{b,nntp} (after RTFM/FAQ!)

I do NOT have the time to answers configuration questions. Sorry!
