Trouble with /var/spool/mail/????
Out of necessity, I have recently moved /var to another partition.
I tar'ed up the directory and then untar'ed it on the new
partition. This morning, I cannot get xfmail to open
/var/spool/mail/user saying that it cannot lock the file.
I figure the problem results from the movement of /var.
Also, when I run dselect, I often see the message:
Update-menus: Cannot remove lockfile /var/run/update-menus.pid
which may come from the same cause.
Any suggestions on solving these troubles? What are the
appropriate permisions for /var/spool/mail/user?
Thanks for any assistance,
