rpm -qi mailman
If there are any installation notes for post install, that should bring
them to light.
I've installed Mailman many, many times from source. I've also done a
few rpm installs. The source one's *always* work.
The rpm ones always need a bit of tweaking - which is fine once you know
what to tweak. RedHat 9's rpm install seems to work fairly well, though
I did have to run check_perms -f to get it to work properly (and that
was not in the documentation for the rpm).
Good Luck - Jon Carnes
