nothing wrong with /var/cache/lunar or /var/spool/lunar being empty...
lunar's state files are in /var/state/lunar. if that folder is empty and no valid
*.backup files are there, you'll have to reconstruct them manually from the
information in /var/log/lunar/md5sum or similar, which is a bit of a pain
here's roughly what a /var/state/lunar folder should contain (sizes approximate)
$ ls /var/state/lunar/ -s
4 blacklist.Alpha 68 depends 64 module.index
4 blacklist.PowerPC 68 depends.backup 36 packages
4 blacklist.SPARC 280 depends.cache 36 packages.backup
4 blacklist.x86 240 module_history
