When I install sympa, it looks well, and goes correctly on. But it does absolutely nothing : with -d option, I just see Reaper unwaited pids : Open = 0 ad infinitum and no messages adressed to sympa seems to come in. The messages are not even in the spool/msg directory.
Solution : verify the setuid bit on program queue :
rwsr-xr-x 1 sympa sympa 40012 juin 30 15:44 queue
Explanation : you probably (and prudently) compile and install sympa as a normal user (sympa perhaps ? ), but user root is the only one authorized to modify setuid bit. You may compile with a normal account, but don't forget to modify manually the setuid bit on $sympa/bin/queue
Remember that if your implementation uses the smrsh facility, the setuid
executables such as
bouncequeue will be in the special smrsh
/etc/smrsh). You will need to apply the setuid bit to
the files in this directory and not the files with the same name in
/home/sympa/bin. See man smrsh for more info.
