fcntl_setlk() called by process w/ broken flock() emulation

Post by Main Line Health Syst » Wed, 29 May 1996 04:00:00



Can anyone explain this error that I get on boot with Slackware 3.0,
kernel 1.3.100 complied ELF for Pentium?

Thanks in advance, Hal

Sure, read the file /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes which explains
exactly why you're getting that error message and how to cure it.
Don't just do updates if you aren't willing to read the documentation.

Hi Hal,

sorry - this mail wont help you a lot..it just will say I am in the same
desaster. The broken flock()messsages bomb my bootup-sequence.
I was running a Linux-system with a Kernel of 1.2.13 which worked fine.
I needed to upgrade to use netatalk (Appletalk-application) and choosed
to install the 1.3.100 Kernel. After all I fetched the errormessages
you mentioned. According to the process-ids show during bootprocess
"lpd" "-bash" and "agetty" seem to be the affected parts.
Im not experienced in Linux...working with it just for a few weeks now, so
I will stand behind you and hope that any Linux-Guru comes around and tell
us a solution fpr this prob...I even dont know what effect these crashes
have on my system - did you recognize any problems?

Im using a 386/40 system / 8MB / ISA / Ethernet / Quantum 1080

Christian.

Yes absolutely *anyone* can.  All they need do is scan the last few
days of this newsgroup (where IMHO we're all mighty sick of this
question) or read the documentation that comes with 1.3.100.

You should read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes

According the the /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes file these messages
are harmless. That file also suggests several ways to make them go away if
they annoy you. The best way is to upgrade your libc and  recompile any of
the offending programs that were statically linked against it.
