Re: package is stuck on starting

Hi. For HP-UX, this means that some other LVM command is running and has the file locked. This is used to make sure multiple LVM commands do not try to do the same thing simultaneously. Check your ps -ef output for running lvm commands(at least one is probably running from the package control script and is waiting on the lock) and see if there are multiple lvm commands running. Maybe one is hung and it would be possible to kill it. If you cannot kill the commands, I would suggest opening a call with the response center to investigate why they are hung, or reboot the server if you just want to try it again.

If this is 11.17, then it is definitely HP-UX. There is no 11.17 version for Linux.
