Hi, just set a friend up with puppy ( 1.0.4) and dialup with external modem, works very well, however the dialup has failed and it appears the lock file at /var/lock/lck.. is corrupt and needs deleting - I can find no way puppy will let me do that! naughty puppy.........
any help much appreciated.
thanks
tim

Sometime back on another install of Puppy, I ran into something simular. Woulnt let me delete, but would let me rename. If you can rename it, then it will just be ignored and new lock file created.
