Please do not hijack existing threads for new topics. Post an original
message, not a reply.

The instructions you reference above are old. They reference mailman
2.1.10. The current version is 2.1.12. They are also incomplete
because they don't mention creating the site list.

The error message you got says you didn't create the site list, which
is normally named 'mailman', not 'mailman-admin', but in your case you
have declared its name to be mailman-admin by putting

MAILMAN_SITE_LIST = 'mailman-admin'

in mm_cfg.py.

Our installation manual is in the tarball and also at
<http://www.list.org/mailman-install/index.html>. See section 8.
