I have installed Python 1.5.2 and Mailman latest version on a 

Ultra Server 1, with SunOS 5.6. I have added a new group 

'mailman' with the user 'mailman' in it.

All the installation have been done as root, and without 

problems. But when executes './bin/check_perms' I obtain the 

following results:


Traceback (innermost last):

  File "./bin/check_perms", line 166, in ?


  File "./bin/check_perms", line 76, in checkall

    os.path.walk(mm_cfg.PREFIX, checkwalk, STATE)

  File "/usr/local/lib/python1.5/posixpath.py", line 271, in walk

    walk(name, func, arg)

  File "/usr/local/lib/python1.5/posixpath.py", line 265, in walk

    func(arg, top, names)

  File "./bin/check_perms", line 58, in checkwalk

    print path, 'bad gid (has: %s, expected %s)' % (

KeyError: getgrgid(): gid not found

I don't know where this error comes from. 

Thanks in advance,
