I have a weird problem with a program that I cannot run, because the sytem thinks it's already running - while this is not the case.
[sabin@mdv ~]$ amule
Checking if there is an instance already running...
There is an instance of aMule already running
Raising current running instance.
I'm running Mandriva 2006 with KDE 3.4.2, and amule is installed from an RPM package provided by PLF.
I tried removing and then reinstalling the program's package : that changed nothing.
I changed KDE's defaults, so that it would boot with a blank/virgin session, without any previous parameters : that changed nothing.
Of course, there is no amule program running, ksysguard (or a simple ps -A) didn't show any sign of it.
If I run amule as another user, for instance, this time the program will run.
So well, would you have any idea how I could solve that problem and be finally able to be able to run again my program ?
Any additional info required, I'll fetch it
Thanks a lot if you can help
