Hi there:

I'm trying to run Mailman list processor a few days here already, but no
luck yet. Below is short description on operations.

First off: our site is running qmail and I am not intended to change
this. Right now I'm running ezmlm for list, it works very well, but
management just hurts :)
Inventory here:
# rpm -q python
# uname -a
Linux jenka.asosise 2.0.36 #1 Tue Dec 29 13:11:13 EST 1998 i686 unknown

OK, downloaded Mailman from www.list.org, untarred, RTFM and go!
I need to set mail-gid and cgi-gid
# id -g alias
# ./configure --with-mail-gid=80 --with-cgi-gid=99

# make; make install

Perfect, new-list works just well, as does CGI-interface.
# cat /var/qmail/alias/.qmail-info
|preline /home/mailman/mail/wrapper post info

OK, let's try to send mail.. oops, no action. Quick look to qmail and
mail.* logfiles:

935501275.051940 new msg 10187

WANTED gid 80, GOT gid 2108.  (Reconfigure to take 2108?)

Hmm, there's no gid 2108 on system at all. Even no uid. I'm lost!
What's wrong? 

Thanks in advance,
