FAQ
Hi,

I am trying to install mailman on FreeBSD 4.7 and have encountered some problems.

1. I use postfix+mailman. In the installation guide, it describes
a known problem with gid and postfix.

I followed the instructions and here is my setup:
root at ntugene /usr/local/mailman# grep aliases /usr/local/etc/postfix/main.cf
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases, hash:/usr/local/mailman/aliases.postfix
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases, hash:/usr/local/mailman/aliases.postfix

oot at ntugene /usr/local/mailman# ls -al aliases.postfix* ?? 10/27 10:34:27
-rw-r--r-- 1 mailman mailman 1343 Oct 27 10:15 aliases.postfix
-rw-r--r-- 1 mailman mailman 65536 Oct 27 10:15 aliases.postfix.db

%id
uid�(mailman) gid�(mailman) groups�(mailman)
%python -c'import os; print os.getgid()'
91

But I still get this error:

Oct 27 10:18:59 ntugene Mailman mail-wrapper: Failure to exec script. WANTED gid
91, GOT gid 65534. (Reconfigure to take 65534?)

root at ntugene /usr/local/mailman# id 65534 ?? 10/27 10:36:48
uide534(nobody) gide534(nobody) groupse534(nobody)


Should I use group nobody to run this? It seems contradictory
to the installation documents and security practices as well.

Thanks,
Michael
