Hello.  I have installed majordomo-1.94 for the first time, and I am
receiving the following errors.  I saw reference to this in the FAQ and in
the mailing list, but the instructions were incomplete (or maybe I just
didn't understand them).  I've done what I thought must be done, but to no
avail.  This is on a RedHat 7.0 system.

I have created a link in /etc/smrsh as follows:
# ls -l /etc/smrsh
total 6
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         1024 Feb 21 02:33 .
drwxr-xr-x   40 root     root         5120 Feb 21 03:03 ..
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           19 Jan 25 00:35 slocal ->
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           26 Feb 21 02:33 wrapper ->

I've added the following aliases to /etc/aliases (and ran newaliases
command) :
majordomo:  |wrapper majordomo
# (originally, I had /usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper specified here,
# but it seems to make no difference)
majordomo-owner: inbound
owner-majordomo: inbound
test:  "|wrapper resend -l test test-list"
test-list: :include:/usr/lib/majordomo/lists/test
owner-test: inbound
test-owner: inbound
test-request: inbound

On a different note, I would like to maintain the aliases in an extension
file by using the OA command.  However, when I try that, I
receive the following error with 'newaliases' :

# newaliases
/etc/aliases: 47 aliases, longest 38 bytes, 598 bytes total
hash map "Alias1": unsafe map file /usr/lib/majordomo/majordomo.aliases.db:
Permission denied
WARNING: cannot open alias database /usr/lib/majordomo/majordomo.aliases
Cannot create database for alias file /usr/lib/majordomo/majordomo.aliases

I cannot seem to run this as either the 'majordom' user nor as root.

Is there any hope for me, or must I be shot?  :^)
