Hi all,
We are currently testing Mailman and plan to switch from Listproc once we
get things working well.  I have installed Mailman and successfully
created a "test" list.. everything works fine.  Now, I'm trying to add
another list using ~/bin/newlist and I'm getting the output below:  

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "bin/newlist", line 146, in ?
    raise SystemExit(main(sys.argv))
  File "bin/newlist", line 93, in main
    newlist.Create(list_name, owner_mail, pw)
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 729, in Create
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 1373, in Lock
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/LockFile.py", line 245, in lock
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:


and if it helps, here's the contents of /home/mailman/locks:

-rw-rw-r--   2 mailman  mailman        77 Mar 13 18:22 <site>.lock
-rw-rw-r--   2 mailman  mailman        77 Mar 13 18:22
-rw-rw-r--   1 mailman  mailman        82 Mar 13 18:12 mmqueue_run.lock
-rw-rw-r--   1 nobody   mailman        92 Mar 13 18:19
-rw-rw-r--   1 mail     mailman        84 Mar 13 18:08 test.archiver.lock
-rw-rw-r--   1 mailman  mailman        75 Mar 13 18:19 test.lock

Ok, now for the embarrassing part (newbie alert!)..  After I compiled and
installed Mailman I uninstalled then REinstalled Apache.  It's a long
involving me goofing up my first httpd.conf file and panicing, but I
thought I should mention it as it <may> mean something to someone.  Do I
need to recompile Mailman??  Any help/advice is greatly appreciated!!
