Hi there!
I've just installed Mailman 2.1.4 on a RedHat9 box, and all went OK.
The only particularity is that I've installed the software in
/var/mailman instead of default location.

Well, after setting all the parameters, onto the web interface,
when I've tried to setup a test list, I've got the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/mailman/scripts/driver", line 87, in run_main
  File "/var/mailman/Mailman/Cgi/create.py", line 55, in main
    process_request(doc, cgidata)
  File "/var/mailman/Mailman/Cgi/create.py", line 226, in process_request
    sys.modules[modname].create(mlist, cgi=1)
  File "/var/mailman/Mailman/MTA/Postfix.py", line 232, in create
  File "/var/mailman/Mailman/MTA/Postfix.py", line 53, in _update_maps
    raise RuntimeError, msg % (acmd, status, errstr)
RuntimeError: command failed: /usr/sbin/postalias /var/mailman/data/aliases (status: 1, Operation not permitted)

Now, the aliases files permissions are:
-rw-rw----    1 root     mailman      2474 Jan 14 23:32 aliases
-rw-r--r--    1 mailman  mailman     12288 Jan 12 01:36 aliases.db

/var/mailman/data/aliases file is modified, but /var/mailman/data/aliases.db is not

Also, I do not get the notification email and I cannot (obviously) login into the admin panel ot the list.

I'm sure is something pretty simple, but I cannot see the solution.

Please advice
