pulseaudio 3689 pic.c : Failed to write PIB file


My Suse Linux server is running on suse11sp3 with eDir 8.87sp2. As it sits in a very busy VMWare host, I relocated it to another VMware host the night before.

However, when I startup the server after I successfully relocate it (have already shutdown the Suse o/s before the relocation), the following errors prompt:-

server name pulseaudio[3689]: pid.c: Failed to write PID file.
server name pulseaudio[3689]: main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed.
server name pulseaudio[3689]: main.c: Deamon startup failed.

Then the dialog box “worker exited with status1” prompt one by one after click the ok button.

Would anyone know what’s wrong and how to fix it?

Many thanks,


I finally found that it is related to disk full.

Thanks & Regards,
