I have installed mailman before on a different machine.
FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE #0
Apache 1.3.27 (source)
Python 2.1.3 (from ports)
Postfix 2.0.9,1 (from ports)
(I know this is far from complete as far as parameters go)
and I am told,
checking for user name "mailman"... configure: error:
***** No "mailman" user found!
***** Your system must have a "mailman" user defined
***** (usually in your /etc/passwd file). Please see the INSTALL
***** file for details.
But I didn create a user mailman.
and FreeBSD likes to have a redundant file called /etc/master.passwd which
I added the same:
Apparently there is a problem with this.
For completeness, I also added the group mailman to /etc/group as below
These UIDs and GIDs are unique to mailman.
