[SLE] Leafnode Problems

I have been using leafnode successfully for quite a while. However, I
noticed that the level of the latest package on the SuSE website is
1.9.4-17. The current package level is up to 1.9.12 so I thought I'd

In short, I can't get the latest package to work. I tried both an rpm and
compile from source. Both have the same problem. While texpire and
fetchnews work I can't access any articles. I can't connect to the
leafnode deamon. When I try and telnet to port 119 of the news server I
get a message that leafnode 1.9.12 can't read the config file.

Obviously, it is reading the config file if it can do a fetchnews (needs
to read the config file to get the name of the news source). The source
install went in without errors (yes, I added the prefix command to
install in /usr to over write the existing files) as did the rpm. I've
re-installed 1.9.4-17 and things are back to normal.

What am I missing here????
