    Go on, have a guess
    Sounds like your file permissions or ownership might have been screwed up by a wildcard chmod or chown.

    As a start check the permissions on /

    ls -lad /

    That should be something like:

    drwxr-xr-x 28 root root 4096 Oct 25 21:54 //

    Also, make sure that none of your partitions are out of space.

    Already fails...

    It is strange, since reinstalling mailman did the fix in 2 machines..... but I have the problem at 5 more, and reinstalling mailman does not fix the problem, only showing the same errors:

    Code:
    (reinstalling mailman with /scripts/reinstallmailman)
    ....
    ....

    Any ideas?

    Sorry to raise an old thread, but I am also experiencing exactly the same problem. Did the OP acquire a resolution or can anyone else offer a solution?

    ls -lad /
    drwxr-xr-x 27 root root 4096 Oct 16 09:29 /

    df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda1 19G 6.4G 12G 36% /
    tmpfs 1002M 0 1002M 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda7 177G 4.5G 163G 3% /home
    /dev/sda5 4.8G 139M 4.4G 4% /tmp
    /dev/sda2 15G 4.3G 9.3G 32% /usr
    /dev/sda3 9.5G 1.2G 7.9G 13% /var


    thanks in advance.

    What are the permissions on the directory you are executing the script from?

    If this a VPS, run this command from the /scripts directory:
    cd /scripts
    ./fixcommonproblems
    See if that helps.
