Do you mean that $prefix wasn't chgrp'd mailman and chmod'd g+s?
I'd really like to know if those instructions in the INSTALL are
incorrect or not. If they just overlooked, then I can write a test to
guarantee that's set up correctly.
JV> The problem here was that /home/mailman needed to be "chmod
JV> a+rx"'d. That one should be mentioned in the install
Okay, here's what the INSTALL doc will say about setting up $prefix:
Make sure this directory is set to group `mailman' and has the
group sticky bit set. You probably also want to guarantee that
this directory is read and executeable by everyone. For example,
these shell commands will accomplish this:
% cd $prefix
% chgrp mailman .
% chmod a+rx,g+s .
