    Hi,

    I had been running cflowd recently on a Solaris 2.5 machine with no
    problems.
    Recently after I upgraded my OS to Solaris8 and downloaded the latest
    version of cflowd 3.0 - & I can't get it to start working :P
    Cflowdmux crashes with the following error:

    Feb 5 06:19:53 flowcollector cflowdmux[410]: [ID 314057 local6.error]
    [E]
    shmget(ftok("/usr/local/arts/etc/cflowd.conf",0),2101248,IPC_CREAT|S_IRW
    XU|S_IRGRP|S_IROTH) failed: No such file or directory
    {CflowdPacketQueue.cc:241}
    Feb 5 06:19:53 flowcollector cflowdmux[410]: [ID 622749 local6.alert]
    [A] g_packetQueue.Create("/usr/local/arts/etc/cflowd.conf",2097152)
    failed: No such file or directory {cflowdmux.cc:457}
    Feb 5 06:19:53 flowcollector cflowdmux[410]: [ID 680678 local6.alert]
    [A] failed to create packet queue! Exiting. {cflowdmux.cc:459}

    I'm sure... I'm sure... my cflowd.conf is absolutely fine! So is some
    one able to understand the error it states in the syslog output. I have
    no clue on what it points :(
