Subject RE: [greenstone-users] lock file problems
Thank you. I ended up recreating the collection and have exported to CD ROM to test out. But the problem has come back. When I tried entering the librarian interface to make modifications I had a message the file was locked. I have removed the gli.lck file.
When I enter the librarian interface the collection is in there in the gather section but the enrich, design and create buttons are not clickable. When I try to enter the Greenstone library I have an error message that my browser is not responding to the enter library request.
Thanks in advance
Best wishes

Hi Lynne,

Have you also tried to delete "gli.lck" file in the collection directory "/gsdl/collect/collection_name/"?  Could you give me more information about the problem? Have you got any error message?

ps. Please send your questions to the mailing-list instead of just to me, so other people can benefit from the discussions.

Thanks Chi ffor your quick reply. I have tried that - it is no longer locked, but I am still unable to open the collection to modify. If you have any other suggestions I would be grateful. This is my first time using Greenstone so please excuse.

Hi Lynne,

When the GLI is open, it holds a lock on that collection. If it crashes, the lock file is not deleted. When you try to open the collection, it will come out with a "Lock File Detected" warning and you can decide to steal the control of the lock file. Or you can delete the lock file "gli.lck" in the collection directory "/gsdl/collect/collection_name/".

I have been building up a collection using Greenstone version 2.52. I have somehow put a lock file on the collection and am unable to continue. Please could any one advise how I can remove this.
Thank you.
