Hello,

I want to set up a majordomo on a Free BSD machine using Perl-5002.  I
followed all the steps given in the INSTALL file.  However I am confused
about the outputof the last step, which I executed as an unpriviledged
user "mycert".

mix: {118} touch /majordomo/lists/test  -------------(lists is in a dir
                                            /majordomo, wherein I created
                                            a file test)
mix: {119} echo'lists' | mail majordomo ---------and the output is

mix: {120} majordomo... User unknown
/home/mycert/dead.letter... Saved message in /home/mycert/dead.letter

            ---------------  I have created a user in passwd file in /etc
dir

mix# cat dead.letter

My "group" file looks like this

wheel:*:0:root,mycert,majordomo
daemon:*:1:daemon,root
majordom:*:118:root,daemon,wheel,mycert
mycert:*:1000:


A part of my passwd file looks as follows:

majordomo:*:71:118:Majordomo Mailing List
Agent,,,:/home/majordomo-1.94.3:/bin/csh
nobody:*:32767:32767:Unprivileged user:/nonexistent:/sbin/nologin

Team:/home/mycert:/usr/local/bin/tcsh


mix# cd /etc
mix# cd ..
mix# cd /home/majordomo-1.94.3/
mix# ./wrapper config-test

------------------------- Mailers -------------------------
You have defined a mailer for delivery.
Attempting to verify that this is a valid mailer...looks okay.
You have defined a mailer for delivering administrative messages.
Attempting to verify that this is a valid mailer...looks okay.
------------------ Checking majordomo.cf ------------------
Checking to see if there are new variables that should be in
your majordomo.cf file...Nope, none that I see.

Have you configured where Majordomo is?
        $whereami is mix.mycert.mimos.my
Good: yup!
----------------------- end of tests -----------------------


Nothing bad found!  Majordomo _should_ work correctly.

If it doesn't, check your configuration file
        (/home/majordomo-1.94.3/majordomo.cf)
closely, and if it still looks okay, consider asking the majordomo-users
mailing list at "majordomo-users @
 greatcircle .
 com" for assistance.  Be sure
and fully specify what your problems are, and what type of machine (and
operating system) you are using.

Enjoy!
