Description Jerome Neuveglise 2001-05-30 04:40:21 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)

Description of problem:
I have setup a few virtual domains via the linuxconf tool.
Aliases for mailman lists are declared in /etc/vmail/aliases.domain.tld

Then all email sent to the list are not computed by mailman and the error 
messages in /var/log/maillog is :

Mailman mail-wrapper: Failure to exec script. WANTED gid 12, GOT gid 
65535. (Reconfigure to take 65535?)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install mailman RPM and then create a list
2. Copy the given aliases in /etc/vmail/aliases.domain.tld
3. Send a mail to thelist@domain.tld
4. See the error in the maillog file

Actual Results:  Mailman mail-wrapper: Failure to exec script. WANTED gid 
12, GOT gid 65535. (Reconfigure to take 65535?)

And of course nothing is processed by mailman.

Expected Results:  The email should have been sent to the list

Additional info:

mailman is working well on the main domain of the machine.

This bug is very old, current release is 2.1.1. This area of the code has been
reworked in the current release.
