The pity of it is that on the regular MacOS X it is trivial to get
Mailman going. After a head crash took out my hard drive last week I
installed MacOS 10.3 on the new drive, set up my network environment,
and made sure my connections to the net were OK. Next I downloaded
Postfix Enabler, ran it to set up and start Postfix, checked my
addresses were working, then download Mailman 2.1.5, followed the
regular install instructions, ran check_perms -f, linked the alias db
to Postfix per the Postfix READ ME, fixed up httpd.conf, and fired up
my lists. I still have to set MM as a startup application, but that's
just laziness on my part. I used to run qmail with MM, but the Postfix
set up was so easy I couldn't be bothered jumping through djb's hoops
(that laziness factor again).
