Mat, why don't you first install Mailman using the directions, and once
you get it working modify it to do whatever special tasks you have in

To quote Jeremy Portzer:
To find out information about an RPM's maker, etc., run "rpm -qip
filename.rpm" .  If you run that command on the Red Hat Linux
mailman-2.0.13-1.i386.rpm, you'll see a bunch of EXTREMELY important
setup notes -- things you must do after installing the RPM.  Follow
those instructions!  Don't complain if you don't follow them and stuff
doesn't work!  *grin*

If that doesn't resolve your problems, then check out the FAQ entry:


Take care - Jon Carnes
