    stale lockfile in licq ?

    After using licq since, well, forever it now refuses to load, with the following (these when trying in terminal, although menu doesn't work, nothing does.)

    Can anyone bail me out?

    TIA!

    Ken

    Code:
    [ken@ken ken]$ licq
    08:13:46: [WRN] Licq: Ignoring stale lockfile (pid 1600)
    08:13:47: [ERR] IniFile: Warning, failed to find section.
                    File    = /home/ken/.licq/users.conf
                    Section = [users]
    08:13:47: [ERR] IniFile: Fatal error, terminating program.
    [ken@ken ken]$ kill 1600

    hey ken,
    merry Christmas - and the cd into the ~/.licq directory and remove the lock file. If that fails rename the ~/.licq directory and try to fire it up again.

    Re:stale lockfile in licq ?

    Thanks, Paul!

    And happy holidays to you and yours!

    I mv'd the folder and started again, and had to re-enter all the users, but hey, I'm back in biz.

    There was no typical lockfile-looking thingie, so that mv seemed the quickest and it worked.

    Thanks again!

    Ken
