OK, i guess i just have to be careful to doublecheck the right paths.

Next difference to Ubuntu is the username, i read in:

"Make sure that the owner of the data/aliases and data/aliases.db file is
mailman, that the group owner for those files is mailman, or whatever user

        % su
        % chown mailman:mailman data/aliases*
        % chmod g+w data/aliases*

Ubuntu uses "list" and not "mailman". I hope this is not a problem.

i just have to install it and all is well, but it is not like this.
I have spent many hours till yet to make this work and still it is not
Now i struggle with the virtual domains:
