Description Steven Dao 2003-06-22 07:41:28 UTC
During startup, there is system messase complaining when it is trying to clean
up the /var/lock folder. It happens with the new baselayout

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
The error is from this line of /etc/init.d/bootmisc
ebegin "Cleaning /var/lock, /var/run"
( find /var/lock -type f -print0 | xargs -0 rm -f -- 1>&2 )

Expected Results:  
Replace this line:
( find /var/lock -type f -print0 | xargs -0 rm -f -- 1>&2 )
with this line from the old version of bootmisc
( cd /var/lock && find . -type f -exec rm -f -- {} \; 1>&2 )
will solve the problem.

my /var is a sperate partition of 2GB disk space.
