I'm trying to set up p4 for personal home use.  I downloaded the cl
client and p4d, and have had very little luck.  Here's what I'm trying
to do:

bash-3.1$ /synology/sw/p4/bin/p4d -d -r /synology/sw/p4/root -J
Perforce server error:
        Database open error on db.counters!
        BTree is corrupt!
        lock: : No locks available

I've gone through the docs about how to set up a new root / depot, but
have found nothing.  Following the directions at


yielded the above error.

I'm kind of at a loss, but I also think there must be something
simple. And yes /synology/sw/p4/root is rwx for the user.

Thanks for any help,
