Hi Karl!

I had that problem before, when I installed the client on a friend's PC
(running OS/2 FWIW). Turned out I had specified the path to the
checkpoint file incorrectly, misspelled the directory or something.

Look for the lines in your ini-file that look something like this
(please translate to *NIX format):


...and make sure the path to the files you have specified really exists.
I don't think this is a fatal error, just means that the client can't
use checkpoint files, and you will lose two blocks if your machine
crashes (unlikely under Linux, but not impossible).

Best regards,
