Without synaptic running to my knowledge....

I have

joe at xxxxxxx:~$ sudo find / -name 'lock' -print
/media/hdb2/etc/X11/xkb/symbols/lock (Hard Drive B)
/media/hdb2/tmp/gconfd-nate/lock (Hard Drive B)
/media/hdb2/tmp/gconfd-root/lock (Hard Drive B)
/media/hdb2/var/lock (Hard Drive B)
/media/hdb2/home/joe/.kde/share/apps/kabc/lock (Hard
Drive B)
/media/hdb2/home/joe/.kde/share/apps/kmail/lock (Hard
Drive B)
/media/hdb2/home/son/.kde/share/apps/kabc/lock (Hard
Drive B)
/media/hdb2/home/son/.kde/share/apps/kmail/lock (Hard
Drive B)
/media/hdb2/root/.kde/share/apps/kabc/lock (Hard Drive
/media/sda2/etc/X11/xkb/symbols/lock (Portable drive)
/media/sda2/var/lock (Portable drive)


find: WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for
/proc/11297: this may be a bug in your filesystem
driver.  Automatically turning on find's -noleaf
option.  Earlier results may have failed to include
directories that should have been searched.

On an earlier reboot after using SUSE -- I got a HAL
(Hardware Abstration Layer?) error too BUT NOT on this

Thanks for the continuing help
