It is not clear what is going wrong as this point.
What should be happening is that:
1. Apache should run the $exec-prefix/cgi-bin/admin CGI wrapper. This
in turn runs:
2. The Python script $prefix/Mailman/Cgi/admin.py
From what you have said the first step does not appear to succeed. If
it had then any subsequent error would have been reported by the
wrapper. No evidence of a Python problem as such.
You could check your syslog to see if the the wrapper managed to write
anything there. But, if the Mailman install process did not report any
errors, I suspect your problem lies with the httpd.conf entries. Where
is $exec-prefix/cgi-bin/admin in your setup and what httpd.conf entries
did you add?
I installed following the INSTALL-Instructions..
(compiling etc. i arrived at httpd.conf and did the changes..)
I just upgraded to Python 2.3.4 and recompiled mailman but the
error still occurs.
Anything logged in the Mailman error log ($prefix/logs/error)?
What OS? What version of MM? How installed?
i noticed that other people have a similiar issue, but there was no
I installed mailman and after doing the necessary changes to
httpd.conf i tried to check out if the cgi will work or not. and it
will give a

The httpd-log says: Premature End of script headers: admin
apache runs the cgi-bin as user/group: nobody
where is the error? i followed the instructions..
seems that something's wrong with python?!!
