Sure, this is my procedure:

Gnus from the groups buffer A A to list all groups. Hit u on the
groups that I want. I can not select them, they contain 0 messages
says Gnus.

When I am done I press s to save and L for showing my subscribed
groups. Then I run sudo fetchnews and after that I press g in the
groups buffer.

In any groups that leafnode have pulled new articles they will show
up. But since I can not perform a select on my newly subscribed
groups, not even if I restart Gnus or my entire Emacs does this change
- it will never start pulling articles in those groups. They remain
impossible to select.

Mozilla Thunderbird can select, and when I do I get the dummy
placeholder article and at next fetchnews it pulls the articles fine,
after that Gnus works perfect too.

I shall try that then, what do you do, just a sudo touch
/var/spool/news/interesting.groups/* or something?
