Description Hans de Bruin 2010-11-03 14:13:02 UTC
After startup Firefox reports:

The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem.

There an info button which points to:

Yes. This is a known problem. A fix has already been posted to the mailing
lists, and is currently queued up in my 'bugfixes' branch on git.linux-nfs.org.

NLM: Fix a regression in lockd

Apparently, removing the 'transport->srcaddr.ss_family = family' from
xs_create_sock() triggers this due to nlmclnt_lookup_host() incorrectly
initialising the srcaddr family to AF_UNSPEC.
Comment 4 Hans de Bruin 2010-11-03 20:11:28 UTC
Ok, the patch works for me too. I will close the bug when the fix appears in mainline.
