I am trying to get mailman working with RedHat 9.  I installed the RPM from
using yum and it installed version mailman 3:2.1.1-4.i386.  I see where it
is installed at /var/mailman.  When I try to start it up, I get this error:

Logging error: <StampedLogger to '/var/log/mailman/error'>
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/mailman/Mailman/Logging/Logger.py", line 67, in __get_f
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/codecs.py", line 496, in open
    file = __builtin__.open(filename, mode, buffering)
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/log/mailman/error'
Original log message:
[Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/log/mailman/error'

I searched through the archives, and found that I need to create the mailman
list.  So I ran the newlist and added the mailman as the list, and gave it
an email address and password.  But then the script dies with:

Illegal list name: mailman at mm_cfg_has_not_been_edited_to_set_host_domains

I could not find that in the archives, so I am not sure what to do now.

Thanks in advance.
