This is part of what I have in my '.gnus.el'

(setq gnus-home-directory    "~/.emacs.d/gnus.d/"
      gnus-init-file         "~/.emacs.d/gnus.el")
; No primary server:
;(setq gnus-select-method '(list 'nnspool (system-name)))
(setq gnus-select-method '(nnnmil ""))

; Get email, and store in nnml:
(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp ""))
     (add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nntp ""))

(add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '((nnml ""))
                     (nnml-directory "~/.emacs.d/gnus.d/mail/")
                    (nnml-active-file "~/.emacs.d/gnus.d/mail/active")
           mail-sources '(file :path "/var/mail/boudiccas"))

But it fails to load at 'nnml-directory' and also 'nnml-active-file',
but I can't see how else I can give the pathway to gnus. 

This is the actual error it gives -
add-to-list: Symbol's function definition is void: nnml-directory
add-to-list: Symbol's function definition is void: nnml-active-file

ATM my gnus is non-functioning because I've started over with a blank
page. So any help in getting further would be very much appreciated :)
