Running slrn -d gives me this message:

slrn fatal error:
Authorization needed, but could not determine username / password.

It never asks for my username/password.

slrn 1.0.3

I guess you need to add an nnrpaccess line, it's something like:

nnrpaccess "snews://nntp.server.com" "youruser" "yourpass"

Check your .slrnrc file to make sure that the newserver name/address
,your username and password are in the access line.
