Hmm, must be Debian. codaconfedit is missing, so the postinstall
probably failed to configure /etc/coda/venus.conf correctly.

Check whether there is a venus running, kill any running venus binaries,
unmount /coda, and remove possible pid files that might prevent the

# ps auxwww | grep venus
# killall -9 venus
# umount /coda
# rm -f /var/run/
# echo "pid_file=/var/run/" >> /etc/coda/venus.conf
# /etc/init.d/coda-client start
