Cannot create lock file


when I run bt747 under Linux as a usual user I cannot create a lock file in /var/lock and so cannot connect to my iBlue GPS logger. The directory permissions should allow creating files, I can create a simple file by the touch command.

When I run bt747 as root (what I don't want to do) everything is fine.

Do you know a solution for my problem? I guess there are some other access rights which have to be reset.

Thanks for a solution
