grandfatherclock unable to create lock file
I used to run grandfatherclock as a cron job. I just reactivated it, and
it's not working. When I run it from the command line, I get this error:
~$ grandfatherclock -q
Unable to create lock file, /var/lock/LCK../dev/audio: No such file or
I get the same error if I try running it as root. I do have a /var/lock
directory and /dev/audio is my audio device (although cat'ing an au file
>/dev/audio just produced noise, so maybe that's a clue?).
Might the fact that I've installed the DECtalk TTS have anything to do
with it? That doesn't seem likely, as other sound apps (xmms, eg) still
work, using /dev/audio. Googling various things didn't enlighten me.
