Running Ubuntu 14.04. I've been working on getting Linux up and running, compiling and running an app called Nethack. Got everthing working on the O/S. Was able to compile. Worked out some errors when trying to run the executable but now I'm stuck:
I run the follow command in the directory holding the executable:
Command: sudo ./nethack.343-nao
Warning: cannot write to scoreboard file /nh343/var/record
Hit return to continue.
When I hit return I get this:
Cannot open file /nh343/var/perm. This is a program bug.
Waiting for release of fcntl lock on /nh343/var/perm. (9 retries left).
Waiting for release of fcntl lock on /nh343/var/perm. (0 retries left).
I give up. Sorry.
Some other process has an unnatural grip on /nh343/var/perm
Seems like a file lock but I'm not sure how that is happening as this is a stock Ubunto desktop install with nothing else running. I rebooted a few times and tried to run the executable as soon as the machine comes up but I get the same problem. I ran CHMOD -R 777 on the entire directory just for testing purposes and restarted but no love.
I have attached screenshots with the output.
Any help or insight would be great. Thank you!
