I have /usr/portage/distfiles on a network drive.
emerge -avDuf world
was working away nicely but I had to shut down for the night. When I restarted:
it hung with
* waiting for lock on /mnt/distfiles/.virtuoso-opensource-6.1.3.tar.gz.portage_lockfile
If I try
emerge -f virtuoso-server
Calculating dependencies... donw!
>>> Fetching (1 of 1) /dev-db/virtuoso-opensource-6.1.3-r2
>>> File 'virtuoso-opensource-6.1.3.tar.gz' is already locked by another fetcher. Continuing...
If there is a lockfile somewhere, I cannot find it.
What's happening here?
Edit: What's happening is I was not looking in the right place. I was relying on locate to show me all 'lockfile', but it was missing those on the network drive.
