I guess it's time to send this to the entire list once again instead of
just replying privately. Sorry for the noise.
[This is a canned message.]
You have asked a question about a "Permission denied", "Out of memory",
"Bus error", "Segmentation violation", or that Majordomo runs a long
time and consumes nearly all the CPU. All except the "Permission denied"
are usually the result of a bug in Mj 1.93 that is triggered when you
don't have Majordomo configured or installed correctly. Ask yourself the
following questions. They'll give you guidance as to what you need to do
to correct your Mj installation.
1) Do the ownerships and permissions on the list files, log file, and
the directories where they reside allow the majordomo user to write
to the files and create files in the directories?
2) Is wrapper configured and installed correctly? It must be owned by
root and setuid (BSD-based systems are different: see Makefile).
You can test this by logging on as a user other than root or your
majordomo user and running the following *exactly as shown*:
The first should show the uid/gids of the logon user. The second
should show the majordomo uid/gids. If not, you don't have wrapper
installed and/or configured correctly. Note that wrapper must be
installed by the superuser (root) in order to set the owner and
3) Do your aliases use wrapper to invoke the Mj programs?
4) If you're running Perl 5, is your version of Perl at least 5.001e
(perl -v will display the perl version). Perl 4.019 through 4.036
will work, but 5.000 through 5.001d will not. Version 5.003 is
recommended (as of this writing) if you need to upgrade. Note that
some changes are required in the Mj Perl files for Perl 5 (all '@'
characters in quotish strings must be escaped, e.g. "firstname.lastname@example.org"
must be changed to "user\@host.net").
