11<para>The first time <command>slrn</command> is run, the
12<filename>~/.jnewsrc</filename> file must be
13created. For this configuration to work, you must have an environmental
14variable, <envar>NNTPSERVER</envar>, set. In normal operation it would be exported into
15the environment by a startup file, like <filename>/etc/profile</filename>
16or <filename>~/.bashrc</filename>. Here we will just put it into the
17environment of the configuration step. We will use the
18<acronym>LFS</acronym> news server in this example, but you should use
19whatever server you prefer.</para>

21<para>Create the <filename>~/.jnewsrc</filename> file with the following

27<para>You will also have to edit one of the configuration files. There
28is a sample startup <filename>/usr/share/doc/slrn/slrn.rc</filename>
29file that comes with slrn. It is extensively documented but if you
30need more information, look at <ulink
