Re: Majordomo permissions?
I had the same problem with majordomo installed from source. It still
seemed to work, even though I got the chown error message. I did a chown
of everything to daemon:daemon and since then haven't had a problem. I
wonder if the documentation has it wrong (I haven't checked the code).
