Hi!

I've got an Indy now, and I want to make it install (with the current
debian dbootstrap) on a NFS root. So I first go to mount the NFS server
to /target and then proceed with the installation. All .deb's get
downloaded, but they cannot be extracted because dpkg can't lock
/var/lib/dpkg/lock .

Dumb question: How do I make file locking (via fcntl(F_SETLK))
functional?

MfG, JBG
