i am trying to get the cyris nntp server to work, but i find the  
documentation rather lacking.

I have read this one
and thats about all i could find about the cyrus nntp server.

I have set it up and have it running, and i can connect to it, but i  
have no newsgroups
and i can not create any. the tools/mknewsgroups perl script from the  
source is not
working either

dknntp:/usr/src/cyrus-imapd-2.2.12/tools# ./mknewsgroups -a "anyone  
+p  news write" localhost
reading configure file...
connecting... Use of uninitialized value in subroutine entry at /usr/ 
lib/perl5/Cyrus/IMAP/ line 108.
	(in cleanup) client is not of type Cyrus::IMAP at /usr/lib/perl5/ 
Cyrus/IMAP/ line 108.
authenticating... Can't call method "authenticate" on an undefined  
value at (eval 1) line 157.

So, how do i create the newsgroups?
