[Mailman-Users] solaris8 + mailman + postfix problems

OS: Solaris 8 on an e420R

Postix Ver: 19991231-pl13

Mailman Ver: 2.0.6

When sending mail to a list, its not being delivered.

The messages are being sent to the $prefix/qfiles dir and just sitting

The qrunner cron job is not running, and I'm not sure why.

Output from /var/cron/log shows:

<  mailman 15107 c Thu Sep 20 14:41:00 2001 rc=1
>  CMD: /usr/local/bin/python -S /export/home/mailman/cron/qrunner
>  mailman 15297 c Thu Sep 20 14:42:00 2001
! bad user (mailman) or setgid failed (mailman) Thu Sep 20 14:42:00 2001
<  mailman 15297 c Thu Sep 20 14:42:00 2001 rc=1

If I run /usr/local/bin/python -S /export/home/mailman/cron/qrunner from
command line as user mailman, it sends the messages to the list that were
stuck in the $prefix/qfiles dir.

I compiled mailman with:

./configure  --prefix=/export/home/mailman --with-cgi-gid=nobody

It compiled and installed fine.

No errors in the $prefix/logs/

Any suggestions ?
