• move to waffle cnews, or some other package which doesn’t scribble all over memory on long headers cnews-dos ftp://ftp.coast.net/Coast/msdos/waffle/wcnw105c.zip [error] cnews-dos ftp://ftp.halcyon.com/pub/waffle/news/wcnw120b.zip • get the rnews patch from wiretap.spies.com ftp://wiretap.spies.com/waffle/rnews.zip • get the fx-rnews from ftp ftp.uufx.net ftp://ftp.uufx.net/pub/fx/fxrn038.zip • run batscan (or use the -b switch in ruuxqt) ==begin FAQ caption== From: roy@cybrspc.mn.org (Roy M. Silvernail) Message-ID: Date: Thu, 30 Mar 1995 06:05:52 -0700 Roy’s-Message-Updated: to newer versions This is really a FAQ, so here’s my FOA (Frequently Offered Answer): Waffle’s RNEWS has a known bug involving header lines longer than 512 characters. Such lines make RNEWS crash fatally, usually locking the machine in the process. There are a number of options available to avoid this. BSCAN 2.8 prescans all incoming news traffic. RUUXQT 3.
