this hist worked for many months, suddenly, novell-zmd cannot start, or stop. has to be killed -9. rug ping or any rug command does not work.

if i run zmd from command line in foreground, i get the following output, notice i had to control-C it 2 times to get the process to stop just being HUNG. but the 2nd control-C killed it. between the 2nd control-C and the final termination a few seconds later, a "rug ping; rug ca; rug sl" all seem to work.

I have done a "#rm -rf /var/lib/zmd/*"

and still no luck. see at end my attempt to uninstall.

HELP. Neal
