Thread: Find and terminate. With EXTREME PREJUDICE!

  1. #1

    Default Find and terminate. With EXTREME PREJUDICE!

    System management is locked by the application with pid 4059 (/usr/sbin/packagekitd).
    Close this application before trying again.
    "You talkin' to ME"? "You're talkin' to me all wrong there..."

    How do we address this?

    Open up a terminal type:

    Code:
    kill pid 4059
    This usually happens when the updater applet is checking for updates while you're installing software or whatever you need the package manager for.

    linux-v8go:~ # kill pid 4059
    -bash: kill: pid: arguments must be process or job IDs
    -bash: kill: (4059) - No such process
    linux-v8go:~ #

    Tried a bunch of command string variations, but all were invalid commands.

    Finally, ls -l process /* , gave a list of stuff, but no process 4059.


    EDIT:
    Just tried to install again, and no error message; successful install?

    It's just

    kill 4059

    or use killall, which takes process names, but then you should be sure there's only one, the one that you want.

    killall packagekitd

    Or just wait a while.

    Ah, yeah I knew it was something like that. I'll make sure what I'm posting is right next time

    And as an afterthought you may actually want to know what you're killing
    before you kill it. If something is blocking Yast then it's probably
    mildly-important, or at least has the potential to be important. Killing
    processes all day long is fine, but at some point if you do it without any
    concerns you are going to hurt more than help your system.

    Good luck.
