Hello users,
I have searched the archives for this one and I did not get any answers
that would help my situation, though I did get some clues..

I recently upgraded a 2.1.3 install to 2.1.5 (along with
htdig-2.1.5-0.1.patch and indexing-2.1.5-0.1.patch) and now
htdig/archive searches are failing for the following error:


 search failed -12-

If you want to make another attempt to access a list archive then go via the list
users information page.

If this problem persists then please e-mail the following information to the
mailman _at_ ns2.wananchi.com:



Looking at /usr/local/mailman/logs/error, this is what I see:

Sep 11 11:50:12 2005 (75197) htsearch for list: list8, existatus: 127
Sep 11 11:50:12 2005 (75197) htsearch for list: list8, cause: htsearch, detail: -12-
Sep 11 15:41:51 2005 (25558) htsearch for list: , cause: info, detail: No list -2-
Sep 11 16:04:28 2005 (52409) htsearch for list: list1, existatus: 127
Sep 11 16:04:28 2005 (52409) htsearch for list: list1, cause: htsearch, detail: -12-

After consulting the big brain, I did look at my mm_cfg.py and realized
that some paths needed correction with respect to Defaults.py where I
found out that certain variables used previously for HTDIG* were
nolonger in use.

After the fixes, and after running the nightly_htdig script again as
the mailman user, searching the archives now gives a different error:

ht://Dig error
Unable to read document index file
Did you run htmerge?

..and in the ~mailman/logs/error, I see this now:

Sep 11 16:42:57 2005 (23110) htsearch for list: theteam, existatus: 1

At this point, I am surely an my /etc (end of thinking capaity) on this
problem. It's shifted goalpoasts ;)

I'll appreciate your help in resolving this.
