dpkg, NFS, F_SETLK (continued)
To clarify, the installer says
"Failure trying to run: chroot /target dpkg --force-depends --install /var/cache/apt/archives/base-files_3.0.2_powerpc.deb /var/cache/apt/archives/base-passwd_3.4.1_powerpc.deb",
and on that other console it shows
"dpkg: unable to lock dpkg status database: No locks available".
That happens only after basedebs.tar has been downloaded (waste of bandwidth?).
FWIW, there's a tiny command line wrapper around F_SETLK that does it the
same way as dpkg: http://www.tu-ilmenau.de/~past-in/pub_/trylock.tar .
I haven't yet seen an nfs setup where I don't get ENOLCK (Error: No Luck).
I've tried these pairs:
Client system Server system
woody_netinst-20020416-powerpc.iso potato r5 and suse 7.3
woody_netinst-20020416-i386.iso potato r5
IRIX 6.5 "Solaris 2.6 - 2.7" (nmap)
IRIX 6.5 "Sun Solaris 8" (nmap)
