1.74.1. RHBA-2009:1509: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1509
Updated inn packages that resolve an issue are now available.
INN (InterNetNews) is a complete system for serving Usenet news and private newsfeeds. INN includes innd, an NNTP (NetNews Transport Protocol) server, and nnrpd, a newsreader that is spawned for each client. Both innd and nnrpd vary slightly from the NNTP protocol, but not in ways that are easily noticed.
These updated packages address the following issue:
* a PID file -- /var/run/news/ -- is created by the Internet News NNTP server, innd, at startup. If this file was not present when an attempt to stop innd was made, the service did not stop. With this update, the innd init script adds logic to stop innd with the killproc command if a "service innd stop" command is issued and cann to be found. The updated init script also returns a message, "Stopping INND service (PID not found, the hard way)", in this case. (BZ#464916)
All inn users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
