[Mailman-Users] empty archives

Hello everybody!
It seems that it is quite common problem - I was browsing the 
archives of this list and every month someone is asking similar 
question to this one I am going to ask... unfortunatelly I haven't 
found any good answer yet.
But I believe you all know what could be wrong. Perhaps something 
silly, but it has already droven me crazy.
I moved a site with several lists from Majordomo to Mailman. 
Everything is working fine, users are pleased, the only one problem 
is a question of archives.
Empty archives....

Whenever I go to a page like:
(e.g. http://www.most.org.pl/pipermail/eko-news/ - this is real)
I have a message "Currently, there are no archives".

I made the following section in my Web server configuration file:

<Directory /var/lib/mailman/archives/public>
Options FollowSymLinks
order allow,deny
allow from all

and I made the "pipermail" directory a symbolic link to 

So, when I use the address http://www.mysite/pipermail/list-name/, 
it reads files from the /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/list-name . 
There are only two files there - one of them is "index.html" with this 
message "currently there are no archives", and the second one is 
pipermail.pck with some strange contents.

However, all the meesage sent to a list exist in the 
and if I type such URL in my browser, I have an access to some 
raw text data of all messages sent to the list so fat.

But this is not I what I am looking for :-(
I want a real archive, accessible from the info page of every list.

What I did wrong?
Why this "index.html" in my /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/list-
name directory is only a "currently there are no archives" instead of 
nice page with real archives?

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
