I am a relative newbie to linux and debian.
I installed mailman via apt-get, and have since run "dpkg -reconfigure
mailman" a couple times. I also ran the check_perms script.
I am running with postfix and apache2. Also running python 2.3 and I
When I hit one of the mailman cgi pages, I get a scambled page back,
about halfway down is the following:
Mailman CGI error!!!
-S%sThe Mailman CGI wrapper encountered a fatal error. This
entry is being stored in your syslog:Group mismatch error. Mailman
expected the %s wrapper script to be executed as group "%s", but the
system's %s server executed the %s script as group "%s". Try tweaking
the %s server to run the script as group "%s", or re-run configure,
providing the command line option `%s=%s'.Failure to find group name %s.
Try adding this group to your system, or re-run configure, providing
an existing group name with the command line option %s.
There's a lot of posts about fixing this error when the message is
formatted correctly, but not when the strings have not been processed.
I searched the web for some of these strings, and found a bunch of pages
just like mine (broken), but can't find any help getting the cgi to run
