Remove the failed attempt at loading the genome using ipcrm. For example, 'ipcrm -m 3375122'. Then, before starting r-make again, attempt to load the genome manually; for example, to load hg19: /path/to/rmake-1.0/third-party/star --genomeDir /path/to/rmake-1.0/references/indexes/hg19/ --genomeLoad LoadAndExit .
