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.

smrsh: wrapper.majordomo not available for sendmail programs

I have created a link in /etc/smrsh as follows:
# ls -l /etc/smrsh
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
majordomo: |wrapper majordomo
# (originally, I had /usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper specified here,
# but it seems to make no difference)
test: "|wrapper resend -l test test-list"

On a different note, I would like to maintain the aliases in an extension
file by using the sendmail.cf OA command. However, when I try that, I
receive the following error with 'newaliases' :
/etc/aliases: 47 aliases, longest 38 bytes, 598 bytes total
hash map "Alias1": unsafe map file /usr/lib/majordomo/majordomo.aliases.db:
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? :^)
