I have been using this combination since RH 7.1 was released
(with sendmail 8.11.2)
I hope you are referring to majordomo 1.94.5.
What is your majordomo UID:GID?
If you want to follow the rpm, set them to 91:91.
Change $HOME to /usr/lib/majordomo instead of /home/majordomo
(in the passwd entry and the majordomo.cf)
Edit your majordomo.cf so that your lists, digests, archives,
Log file, tmp, etc. live in /var/lib/majordomo.
chown -R majordomo.majordomo /usr/lib/majordomo /var/lib/majordomo
chmod 750 /var/lib/majordomo
chmod 751 /usr/lib/majordomo
subdirectories of $HOME can be 755
subdirectories of /var/lib/majordomo can also be 755 but in
following the rpm settings, should be 750.
ALL "files" under either majordomo directory are owned by majordomo
with two exceptions. Wrapper is owned and SUID root, and the
contrib directory is owner:group root:root.
Don't forget to add majordomo to /etc/mail/trusted-users.
If you look through the HOW-TO messages I posted yesterday,
you can also see examples of what your aliases should look like.
PS. If you just want to give up and use the rpm installer,
One warning about the rpm: Make sure to edit the /etc/majordomo.cf
file to remove (`/bin/dnsdomainname`) and use ("host.domain.name")
