Yes, that was silly wasn't it, lol

i'v just checked and i do have the 2.1.5 rpm installed, but the 2.1.7 
source in my home folder which i have installed
i must have forgotten to uninstall the rpm first, DOH!

so i think i may be able to get away with just pointing..
in httpd.conf...
Alias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/
to /usr/lib/mailman/archives/public/

and yes the archives/public are symlinked to the archives/private folder.

should i just change were the pipermail alias points to in the httpd.conf??
or should i try to uninstall the rpm and reinstall the source??
