Subject: Re: Can't unzub
I know what UID and GID are, I dont know what suid/sgid is or even if they
are the same thing. Additionally, when I chgrp-ed wrapper to root out of
curiosity it threw this back at me:
While running with an effective uid of 8 and an effective gid of 12 12, Majordomo
ran into the following problems:
Unable to write to log file, check permissions on /usr/local/majordomo/Log
Unable to write to list directory $listdir, check permissions on /usr/local/majordomo/lists
I am just digging myself in deeper and deeper it seems. I tried changing
the perms on those directories to daemon (UID) and majordom (GID) to no
