Thread: kupdateapplet lock file?

    Default kupdateapplet lock file?

    Hi All,

    I have 11.1 running very nicely on my AMD Phenom system. However, the updater in the task bar states that the "system is busy" when I try to run updates. Is there a lock file somewhere that I need to remove? Both, YOU and zypper have no issues running updates, it is the updater that loads on startup that is complaining about the updater applet being busy. I couldn't find any online documentation for kupdateapplet, so can someone point me in the right diection to get rid of the "busy"? Thanks in advance.

    the applet has an option "Check for updates only when the system is under low load". Try unchecking it. I had problems with it during the beta.

    That makes sense, I'm running BOINC in the background, everything is always 100% cpu utilization. Thanks. I'll try that.
