Thread: What does this mean?

    Default What does this mean?

    System management is locked by the application with pid 4437 (/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base). I tried updating my system but I can't udate because of that error. Also while I'm on it. Everytime I put in my wireless key to connect to my wireless network. The key I typed in is not the one is registers when it tells me to retype is completely different.

    You could just kill the app:

    In a console, su to root and:

    killall -9 y2base

    or use top and kill from there.

    it means that YaST is already running and you are trying to run
    another instance to update..

    that COULD happen because (maybe) you get tired of waiting the first
    time you startup YaST and click to kill it--NOT a good idea...

    YaST does LOTS of stuff...it TAKES A LITTLE time to do the job..

    start it, and be prepared to be a little patient..

    additionally, the "openSUSE Updater" sitting in your 'task bar' uses
    many of the same behind the scenes tools as YaST and usually starts
    up immediately following a boot, and then again sometimes
    later....and, if the updater is busy, then YaST can't run..

    they must take turns...

    Why the above is basicaly true, it is not YaST that cannot run while the applet is active, but YaST > Software Management.

    You can use YaST for many of its other tasks at the same time.

    you are correct, but it was not the other YaST tasks which were
    complaining..
