afte rleaving majordomo for a little bit (due to more urgent projects) i'm
back to wrestling with it.
OK here goes
i've installed it and running ./wrapper config-test as a normal user comes
up fine. i then proceeded to issue:
% echo 'lists' | mail majordomo
to see if it works
MAJORDOMO ABORT (mj_majordomo)!!
While running with an effective uid of 8 and an effective gid of 12 501 2
ran into the following problems:
Unable to write to list directory $listdir, check permissions on
is the error message i get back.
i've combed through the the sendmail faq and tried compiling wrapper as
non-POSIX which wasn't the problem.
I've set the permissions for the majordomo directory as well as the list
directory to group writeable for group majordomo:501
my effective uid and gid are 502 and 501 respectively in the majordomo.cf
for some reason its running at euid 8. but even then the egid is 501 so it
shouldnt have a problem writing to the $listdir in theory?
any help would be much appreciated.
