Sorry for the misunderstanding ... the whole LITE Lab is only slowly recovering
from Reno ...

So, we reviewed the status report you emailed. It turns out that the lond daemon
was not running - lond must have crashed on startup. Since you did try
/etc/init.d/loncontrol restart, it must reproducably crash.

The odd thing is that both 0.6 and 0.6.1 ship with the same version of lond,
namely 1.103:

/home/httpd/perl/lond:# $Id: lond,v 1.103 2002/10/30 14:50:04 www Exp $

We just untarred the 0.6.1 tarball to make sure ... lond did not change between
releases ...

Could you please email


to the list?

- Gerd.
