Hi list members,
I am having a problem getting mailman to run on my system. I read 
through the INSTALL and FAQ in the distribution but I can't seem to 
fix these errors.

I compiled mailman with both --with-mail-gid= set 12 for mail on my 
system and --with-cgi-gid= set 98 the nobody group apache uses. I ran 
check_perms -f as root and it fixed some permission problems.
I an still getting these errors:

this is in the returned mail that I try to post.
----- Transcript of session follows -----
Failure to exec script. WANTED gid 12, GOT gid 100.  (Reconfigure to take 100?)
554 5.3.0 "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test-list"... unknown 
mailer error 2

this is sent to me as the list owner.
Subject: cron: /usr/local/bin/python -S /home/mailman/cron/gate_news

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/home/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 222, in ?
   File "/home/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 203, in main
   File "/home/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 140, in process_lists
     mlist = MailList.MailList(listname, lock=0)
   File "/home/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 79, in __init__
   File "/home/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 877, in Load
     dict, e = self.__load(dbfile)
   File "/home/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 854, in __load
     fp = open(dbfile)
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
