I just installed mailman 2.1.1 and everything is working except that
when I create a new list via the web browser I get the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/mailman/scripts/driver", line 87, in run_main
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Cgi/create.py", line 55, in main
    process_request(doc, cgidata)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Cgi/create.py", line 217, in
    sys.modules[modname].create(mlist, cgi=1)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MTA/Postfix.py", line 226, in create
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MTA/Postfix.py", line 47, in
    raise RuntimeError, msg % (acmd, status, errstr)
RuntimeError: command failed: /usr/sbin/postalias
/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases (status: 1, Operation not permitted)

However, the list is created and it works fine. Any suggestions?
