Ubuntu - /var/lock problem


Since Oneiric, /var/lock is a symlink to /run/lock and /run/lock are tmpfs filesystems.

#mount | grep /run
tmpfs on /run/lock type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,size=5120k)

On first start/install from source , the directory /var/lock/one is create. But after a reboot, it desapear.

So we get this error on start:
oned[2867]: Error: Cannot start oned, opening lock file /var/lock/one/one

Be careful . You need to create the directory before starting opennebula
