As has been mentioned, the guy who packaged this RPM must have been on a
mental vacation... But if you want to get the RH9 version up and
running, you need to do the following:
Set up the mailman service to run:
chkconfig --list mailman
mailman 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
chkconfig --level 345 mailman on
# this will turn the mailman daemon on automatically when
# the server is booted.
Put the following in your /var/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py file:
MAILMAN_USER = 'mailman'
MAILMAN_GROUP = 'mailman'
Also you will need to put in your hosts real domain name:
#DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'porky.devel.redhat.com'
#DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'porky.devel.redhat.com'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'list.anncons.org'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'list.anncons.org'
DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'http://%s/mailman/'
Run /var/mailman/bin/check_perms -f
Startup the service:
service mailman start
Good luck - Jon Carnes
