[Mailman-Users] --with-mail-gid using postfix

okay, I cleaned the directory, reinstalled the source, ran
./configure --with-mail-gid=943 (mailman) --with-cgi-gid=584 (apache).  The
configure script I noticed though converted my named gids to their numbers,
so either way works.  I moved the mailman aliases file to the mailman home
folder, ran postalias on it with the mailman user.  restarted postfix
several times.  it still doesn't work.

I don't understand the 111 thing.  mailman is trying to connect to an rpc
server on port 111?  weird.  I'm not running any server on that port.  what
daemon usually runs on that port, portmap?  why would it be trying to
connect to that port?  I haven't set mailman to use a particular port.  I
would assume it would use port 25 to connect to the smtp server.

Try with the ID'S (this is what it wants, not the names).

Looks like you need to restart postfix, or whatever your MTA is. Try to
to whatever port you're trying to get it to go to? usually 110, not 111. If
you get connection refused, then you'll know where that problem lies. In
fact, I'd bet that's the entirety of your second problem.
