Hi folks. I also appear to have solved most of the bugaboos, after trying about five or six different approaches (whew!). I'm still trying to get the Redhat cron to run qrunner correctly, but I'd like to compare notes.
BTW, I would love it if there were some way to separate the CGI prefix from the MTA and admin script prefix - this makes it tough to install on virtual machines. I spent the morning browsing the code to figure out how it all works and eventually try to spot a way to do it. It'd be lovely and wonderful to just edit a mailman.conf file and have everything work automagically; that way it'd be much easier to create new virtual Mailman installations whenever one creates a new host without rebuilding the package. I realize that right now, anyway, Mailman isn't architected that way, but one can dream...
Thanks to everyone for a neat package!
Happy New Year! Dave Klingler
I wanted to run Mailman on a virtual web hosting account, namely on a Cobalt RaQ. I didn't find any advice in the mailing list archives, only a couple of other people asking how. So I disregarded the "You will need root access on the machine hosting your Mailman installation" in the README, had a go and (modulo a few hoops jumped through) appear to have succeeded.
As a contribution to the community I would like to write up some notes on what I did, and make them available. Can you suggest where and in what form would be the best way to do that? Maybe a wiki or faqomatic where others can add their own input / caveats etc?
