FAQ
Hello everyone,

Please excuse-me for this question but I haven't been able to find the
answer in archives ...
I try to install 2.1.13 on a new server.
(2.6.28-18-server #59-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 28 02:23:52 UTC 2010 i686
GNU/Linux)

I have used the --prefix option to install mailman in a different
directory :
./configure --prefix=/home/mailman

I can't (and make install neither) mkdir in choosen directory.

Here are the permissions for /home/mailman :
drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4,0K 2010-02-08 08:18 mailman

Here are the groups for the user 'serveur' (the one I launch make
install from) :
id serveur
uid00(serveur) gid00(serveur)
groupes00(serveur),4(adm),20(dialout),24(cdrom),46(plugdev),116(lpadmin),117(sambashare),118(admin),20006(mailman)

Thanks in advance for your help.

    What you are saying is that /home/mailman is group 'mailman', group
    writable and searchable and SETGID and you are a member of the
    'mailman' group yet you can't create subdirectories in /home/mailman.

    The only thing that comes to mind is this from section 3.1 of the
    installation manual

    You must also have permission to create a setgid file in the file
    system where it resides (NFS and other mounts can be configured to
    inhibit setgid settings).
