Makes me wonder how can this requirement be met when > setting up diskless Debian clients (PXE boot over NFS)? IIRC, some combinations of NFS server/client do support full POSIX locking semantics. Failing that: tmpfs and/or symlinks, possibly. Debian doesn't store lock files in the same location as data files, so it may be possible to partition it further into places that need locking (tmpfs) and places that store persistent data (nfs). It may even be that Debian only requires /var/lock to have full POSIX locking. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
