I am new to the Mailman users list but searched through the archives to see if anyone else was having the same problem I was. Redhat did not include a directive for the mailman group in the mailman config file in the rpm that they included with their distro.
Add the following lines to mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py but change the 'your.domain.com' to your own FQDN:
MAILMAN_GROUP = 'mailman'
MAILMAN_USER = 'mailman'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'your.domain.com'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'your.domain.com'
and check for permissions errors and run
$ mailman/bin/check_perms -f
to fix them.
$ mailman/bin/mailmanctl start
and you should have no problems starting the mailman daemon.
I just installed the mailman that comes with RedHat 9.0 ( I think it is
2.1-8). A piece of documentation says as of ver2.1 mailman requires a
When I try running it I get the following message:
[EMAIL PROTECTED] mailman]# /sbin/service mailman start
Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/var/mailman/bin/mailmanctl", line 319, in main
File "/var/mailman/bin/mailmanctl", line 274, in check_privs
gid = grp.getgrnam(mm_cfg.MAILMAN_GROUP)
KeyError: getgrnam(): name not found
Can anyone enlighten me to how to fix it?
