See if the file


exists.  If it doesn't just created it as an empty file and make sure  
that it is readable by the mailman group.  Then try genaliases again.

If that doesn't work, just remove the reference to data/virtual- 
aliases in your postfix  That will just be a temporary fix,  
because later you may need virual-aliases.

Can you post an ls -l of your mailman/data directory?
