[Mailman-Users] Change GID w/o recompiling?

Ahhh SuSE. Jim's pointer [via Mark] is good: You should change
/etc/mailman.cgi-group by hand.

We had some issues with the changes 'sticking' past a SuSEconfig run,
but we also had some major group muckups. Once those were sorted, and we
actually had a proper group to match the gid, all was well.

>From SuSE's Mailman package docs:
-------
Web and mail wrappers
=====================

With these two files:
/etc/mailman.cgi-group
/etc/mailman.mail-group

you can specify, which group id will mailman get from web (resp. mail)
server.
The values are preset for use with Apache web server and Sendmail MTA.
If you switch for example to Postfix MTA, fill in
/etc/mailman.mail-group
group handed over by this MTA (it is 65534 (nogroup) in SuSE Linux).

Nice to know we guessed right. Eventually we installed 2.1.5 by hand
over SuSE's RPM anyway, and set it right from the start.


Cheers

Adam
