SCO Merge error message: ERR_SEMAPHORE: dos: Error Accessing Semaphore?

SCO Merge error message: ERR_SEMAPHORE: dos: Error Accessing Semaphore?

Post by pe.. » Wed, 01 May 1996 04:00:00

I work for a software company, and we have been using SCO Merge for
several years.  Just a few days ago, I tried accessing SCO Merge, by
typing dos at the $ prompt.  It came back with the following message:

ERR_SEMAPHORE: dos: Error Accessing Semaphore

It then returns you to the $ prompt.  I have tried from 4 different
terminals, with no luck.  However, If I try it from the main console,
it works just fine.  I have looked through the manual, and error
messages, but have not found anything.  Any help on this would be
greatly appreciated.  Please send any information via email to:

Thanks in advance...

1. Error message continuous error messages

The error message "lp: Driver configured but no interfaces found" keeps
being printed on my screen.  It is from something I tried to do with lp.

How can I kill whatever is causing it.  I did a ps -fe, but I don't see
any process that looks like that.  This happened after I tried printing a
test page.

What should I do?
