Hi all. I'm attempting to get Mailman running on a Slackware-10.0 machine with and Grsecurity installed. After running check_perms_grsecurity.py and then running ./mailmanctl start, I 
received several errors such as this:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/qrunner", line 76, in ?
    import CheckFixUid
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/CheckFixUid.py", line 6, in ?
    class CheckFixUid:
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/CheckFixUid.py", line 12, in CheckFixUid
    if os.geteuid() != uid:
NameError: name 'uid' is not defined
I googled for checkfixuid, and the closest I came to a fix is http://www.mail-archive.com/cooker@linux-mandrake.com/msg126675.html
Unfortunately, I can't test that patch since its been packaged within an RPM. Any other ideas on how to fix this are appreciated. Thanks.
Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little
   security will deserve neither and lose both.
