|Title||"p4dti subsystem is locked" message from startup script|
|Assigned user||Nick Barnes|
|Description||After installing the P4DTI RPM on Linux, running "/etc/rc.d/init.d/p4dti start" generated the error message "p4dti subsystem is locked" . We cannot reproduce this except by user error, but the RPM packaging could be improved to prevent such an error.|
|Analysis||This message means that the lock file /var/lock/subsys/p4dti already exists. This file is used by the startup script itself but not otherwise by the P4DTI. Neither Ravenbrook nor Perforce can reproduce this problem except by not stopping the P4DTI properly when uninstalling, or by running the startup script twice. |
Uninstalling (rpm -e) should be changed to delete this file if it is present.
