FAQ
I was having some problems with one of the cgis under 2.1a2, but that
sort of thing is to be expected with an alpha release. I figured that
I'd upgrade to 2.1b1 to see if it helped. Well, it changed the problem.

All mail to any mailman/wrapper managed addresses now bounce like so:

-----------------------------------------------------
<loopback at iago.org>: Command died with status 1:
"/home/mailman/mail/wrapper
post loopback"
Reporting-MTA: dns; ra.iago.org
Arrival-Date: Fri, 19 Apr 2002 13:29:41 -0400 (EDT)

Status: 5.0.0
Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; Command died with status 1:
"/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post loopback"
-----------------------------------------------------

Some of the web page CGI scripts throw tracebacks. For instance, the
admin membership management page:

-----------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):

Did I miss some documentation necessary for the upgrade? Mailman is
useless on this host at this time.

Thanks for any help. Please let me know if there is any more info
that I can provide.

    Message to self: RTFM.

    More appropriately: Read the Fine NEWS File

    The bounce problem was due to not having switched "wrapper" to
    "mailman" in my aliases.

    Now, the problem is somewhat different.

    Mail to all of the various mailman-managed addresses goes through. I
    get many lines of the following format in my error log:

    Apr 19 16:30:51 2002 (8765) lost data files for filebase:
    1019248249.5778871+551c9167abc87d8d6b151ba2dcaccfdc818fee30

    Also, I continue to get the same tracebacks on the membership
    management pages, which look like a bug. Did I miss something else in
    the docs? I think I've read them more thoroughly now...

    Thanks.
