I am doing the install as a member of the Mailman group.
I have made sure that the installation directory can be written to by that
I have run 'configure' and 'make' successfullly.
When I run 'make install', I get the following:
[chris at gatsby mailman-2.1.8]$ make install
Creating architecture independent directories...
chmod o-r /usr/local/mailman/archives/private
chmod: changing permissions of `/usr/local/mailman/archives/private':
Operation not permitted
make: *** [doinstall] Error 1
So, assuming that the problem was changing the permissions for the
archives/private directory, I made the change as root and then went back to
do the 'make install'. I get the same message, even though I manually had
changed the permissions.
If I run check_perms, I get this:
[root at gatsby bin]# ./check_perms
Warning: Private archive directory is other-executable (o+x).
This could allow other users on your system to read private
If you're on a shared multiuser system, you should consult the
installation manual on how to fix this.
No problems found
Can someone give me some suggestions?
