We are moving our repository from Solaris to Linux. I took a checkpoint

I tried these files using a Solaris server, and had no problems. I even
tried just running p4d (without the license or the journal), and got the
same error. These commands do work on the Solaris server. I can also run

should know about Linux that may prevent it from being a perforce
