Believe it or not, I am having trouble building mailman. I have done it
in the past with a previous version on a different machine. I made a
detailed log describing my individual steps.
Step 1: Unpacked tar in /root/mailman-2.0.13/
Step 2: Added line in /etc/group/
Step 3: Added line in /etc/passwd
Step 4: Added line in /etc/master.passwd
Step 5: Decided that $prefix shall be /usr/local/mailman/
Step 6: Executed in csh,
Step 7: Executed in csh,
#chown mailman:mailman /usr/local/mailman/
Step 8: Verified Step 7
Step 9: Executed in csh,
Step 10: Executed in csh,
#chgrp mailman .
Step 11: Executed in csh,
#chmod a+rs,g+ws .
Step 12: Executed in csh,
Step 13: Executed in csh,
Step 14: Executed in csh,
#export MAILHOST WWWHOST
export: Command not found.
Step 15: Executed in csh,
# /root/mailman-2.0.13/configure --prefix=/usr/local/mailman/
Step 16: Returned data from configure:
checking for default fully qualified host name... frybread.stuorg.iastate.edu
checking for default URL host component... frybread.stuorg.iastate.edu
The big question: It doesn't seem to have listened to MAILHOST and
WWWHOST from steps 12-14.
Step 17: Executed in csh,
Step 18: Executed in csh,
make: don't know how to make install. Stop
Step 19: Assuming Line 102 in INSTALL is wrong or misplaced. I will try
'make' first and then 'make install'
Step 20: Executed in csh,
make: no target to make.
Step 21: Give up on install...
