[Mailman-Users] help with configuring mailman

dear all,

i'm trying to follow the mailman config instructions, but am having trouble.
i'm on debian woody, using exim as the MTA.

when i run check_perms, i get the following error message:

  # ./check_perms
  Traceback (innermost last):
    File "./check_perms", line 280, in ?
    File "./check_perms", line 183, in checkcgi
      exes = os.listdir(mm_cfg.CGI_DIR)
  OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

i'm not sure, but this looks like it may be a python error.  it's
sufficiently cryptic (i know no python) that i don't understand it.

also, i'm getting loads of cron errors in the mail as well:

  Traceback (innermost last):
    File "/var/lib/mailman/cron/qrunner", line 275, in ?
    File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/LockFile.py", line 219, in lock
    File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/LockFile.py", line 350, in __write
      fp = open(self.__tmpfname, 'w')
  IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:

this also looks like a python error.

i don't have a clue what to do.  can some kind soul help me figure out what's
going wrong?

greatly appreciated!
