Hi antonio montagnani!

I am no expert.

Lock files usually mean that "someone else" (maybe you as another user
or befor a re-boot) were useing the utility so a "lock file" was set
up to make sure that only one user at a time may use the utility
(happens once in a while with Firefox and it's user parameter files).

The usual "fix" (if you know there are no other users) is to be root
and delete the file.

It may be that your user has no permissions to /var/lock or that the
program has not permissions to /var/lock.

Good Hunting!

Tod

Tnx Tod

Some more information:
I am using a Fritz ISDN card
I installed fcpi from aTRPMs

I re-booted and fcpi module is loaded

I started efax (with gtk-efax), I told that modem is eth2 (eth0 and
eth1 are my network adapters)
I prepared a postcript file
I tried to deliver fax but I got that error.
Any other clue?? I understand that fax is no longer popular but... ;-)
