This probably means that you're already running another NNTP-server...
INN has it's own built-in NNTP-server and wants port 119 to be free
when started...

Strange, I get the same message under 1.2.0 but not under 1.1.90, does
that mean somehow it 1.2.0 takes over the port or is something else
at fault ?

Weird..  I have INN running quite happily under 1.2.0..  Did you check
your inetd.conf, too?

We started getting this on an upgrade from 1.1.94 to 1.1.95, comment
out the line in /etc/inetd.conf that references nntp.  As per the INN
FAQ, and all should be well again.
