Two, I think related, entries in syslog


Running completely updated Slack64-current with Plasma5. Perusing the syslog I came across these entries -

Code:
Apr  6 04:39:22 missi nfsdcltrack[1648]: Storage directory /var/lib/nfs/nfsdcltrack is not writable. Should be owned by root and writable by owner!
Apr  6 04:39:22 missi nfsdcltrack[1649]: sqlite_remove_unreclaimed: delete failed: attempt to write a readonly database
Looking in /var/lib/nfs I have -

Code:
ls -l
total 20
-rw-r--r-- 1 rpc rpc    0 Nov 15  2018 etab
-rw-r--r-- 1 rpc rpc    0 Feb  4 04:42 export-lock
drwxr-xr-x 2 rpc rpc 4096 Feb 27 12:11 nfsdcltrack
-rw-r--r-- 1 rpc rpc    0 Nov 15  2018 rmtab
drwx------ 2 rpc rpc 4096 Mar 29 20:45 sm
drwx------ 2 rpc rpc 4096 Mar 29 20:45 sm.bak
-rw-r--r-- 1 rpc rpc    4 Dec  9 04:40 state
drwxr-xr-x 2 rpc rpc 4096 Mar 29 20:45 v4recovery
Everything appears to be running fine. Some searching revealed https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10872235/ from a year ago. So, I am not sure if these messages reveal a problem or are someting residual from the past. Can anyone throw some light on these? Thanks

Accepting the log entry as is, what do the logs show after:
Code:
chown -R root /var/lib/nfs/nfsdcltrack
/etc/rc.d/rc.nfsd restart

Thanks for that. It got rid of the syslog messages and everything still seems to work just fine. If root is supposed to be the owner wondering how rpc got it.

Use explodepkg to view the contents of the parent package. If the ownership there is rpc rather than root then let Pat know.
