Everything I've seen on this subject leads me to believe that the 
problems you're having are more to do with discrepancies between the 
portage system you're using, the startup scripts that they provide, 
kernel updates you've applied, etc....

None of the specific error messages or startup scripts you've 
reported on are actually coming from Mailman itself -- they're coming 
from Gentoo-specific tools, and we're not going to be able to help 
you with those.

This would explain why you haven't seen any messages from anyone else 
that are in response to your posts -- all your questions seem to be 
very Gentoo-specific, and don't really have anything to do with 
Mailman itself.

Our Mailman-specific troubleshooting processes are described in the 
FAQ Wizard, and if you search for "troubleshoot", you should turn 
them up.

In particular, before we would be likely to be able to provide any 
assistance to you, we would need to know what is showing up in all 
your various Mailman and MTA logs, especially regarding the startup 

Make sure to also check out the other FAQ Wizard entries that are 
referenced at the top of FAQ 4.78.
