 when this script is run on an older linux distribution such as CentOS 6.5 for example, the provided version of flock is too old to know the ''-E'' option which specifies an exit code in case the lock could not be acquired. in such a situation you can patch the mobi.sh script using this command:  when this script is run on an older linux distribution such as CentOS 6.5 for example, the provided version of flock is too old to know the ''-E'' option which specifies an exit code in case the lock could not be acquired. in such a situation you can patch the mobi.sh script using this command: 
-  sed -i '/-E 66 //' mobi.sh+  sed -i 's/-E 66 //' mobi.sh
 this will make the script work on those systems. however, since now the exit code of flock is ''1'' when it can't acquire a lock the error message displayed in such a case might be a bit misleading, as it is the same as displayed in case of a syntax error in the rsync call. so keep that in mind when debugging such cases.  this will make the script work on those systems. however, since now the exit code of flock is ''1'' when it can't acquire a lock the error message displayed in such a case might be a bit misleading, as it is the same as displayed in case of a syntax error in the rsync call. so keep that in mind when debugging such cases.
