I have *never* been able to get Mailman to run on any Mandrake system I
have. I've tried with Mandrake 7.0 and 7.1 without success. When I do the
same install process on RedHat 6.2 it works like a charm.

If you're using the "secure" kernel with Mandrake, please note that it may
have the Openwall secure linux patch installed which will create problems
with Mailman. There is a fix in the contrib folder called

Since I was successful in getting it to run with RedHat - I was going to go
back and bang on Mandrake again to see if I could *make* it run - but I
haven't had time.
