first try "find / -name oslevel.lock -print" and remove if one is found (  ? or is it /usr/lib/instl/.oslevel.lock as google says ? ) , since imo lock used by oslevel program can be called this way

if no success there next try " ksh -x `which oslevel` " to find out failing command sine "file" on my system tells it is shell script.
