Last desperate plea for help otherwise I will have to go back to using
I haven't had any responses to my 2 posts about the wrapper program
problem. I'm assuming it's because I am doing something idiotic, but
*any* response would be appreciated - either detailed help (very
welcome) or just "the compilation flag should be X instead of Y".
So, here is my problem again. Remember - it's SmartList next :-)
I too am experiencing problems with 2.0.1 mailman and the wrapper GID
problem. Enclosed below are, hopefully, enough snippets for someone to
solve the problem.
Firstly - yes, I have followed the INSTALL (as I understand it), read
the FAQ, searched the python.org archives, and searched all of this
years mailman digests.
Platform: Red Hat Linux 6.0 , Kernel 2.2.17 on an i686
Mailman: 2.0.1 MTA: sendmail-8.11.0
On sending the confirmation reply to a subscription request, I get the
following in my sendmail log:
Mar 1 11:53:58 ds9 Mailman mail-wrapper: Failure to exec
script. WANTED gid 1, GOT gid 12. (Reconfigure to take 12?)
Here is my configuration line:
(BTW - I tried with numerical gid 12 instead of 'mail' - I get the
same problem. )
As you can see, it is configured for 12/mail (see group file entry below).
However, if I run the following by hand:
/share/mailman/linux/mail/wrapper mailcmd test2
Failure to exec script. WANTED gid 12, GOT gid 0.
(Reconfigure to take 0?)
I.e., the wrapper here seems to understand that gid of 12 is required,
but it is getting 0 (because I ran this as root from the command line
My sendmail.cf contains the following:
My /etc/group file contains:
ls -al /etc/smrsh/wrapper
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 Aug 8 2000 /etc/smrsh/wrapper
Any help *deeply* appreciated :-)
