Thread: Yast software instalation module hangs

  1. #1

    Default Yast software instalation module hangs

    I've tried to install mplayer and gflash in order to view some .avi and .flv files from my camera and from the net. Didn't work, somehow codecs seem to be missing. so I figured I'd deinstall and see if there is some sort of multimedia package in the software installation module of yast.
    But now that module hangs whenever it gets to the point of loading installed repositories or checking for them.
    I'm quite new to this, so how do I fix that? Boot from DVD and use the "fix system" function?

    Thanks from Munich

    Sorry, was out of town for a few days. Here's the result:

    linux-a5h0:/home/michael # zypper lr
    # | Alias | Name | Aktiviert | Aktualisieren
    --+--------------------+-----------------------+-----------+--------------
    1 | 20090609-190443 | 20090609-190443 | Ja | Ja
    2 | Packman Repository | Packman Repository | Ja | Ja
    3 | home:AndreasSchwab | home:AndreasSchwab | Ja | Ja
    4 | openSUSE 11.1-0 | openSUSE 11.1-0 | Ja | Nein

    6 | repo-non-oss | openSUSE-11.1-Non-Oss | Ja | Ja
    7 | repo-oss | openSUSE-11.1-Oss | Ja | Ja
    8 | repo-source | openSUSE-11.1-Source | Nein | Ja
    9 | repo-update | openSUSE-11.1-Update | Ja | Ja
    linux-a5h0:/home/michael # zypper ref
    Die Systemverwaltung ist durch die Anwendung mit dem PID 3693 (/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base) gesperrt.
    Schlieen Sie diese Anwendung, bevor Sie es erneut probieren.
    linux-a5h0:/home/michael #
    linux-a5h0:/home/michael #

    last sentence in english would be something like:
    the system managemente is locked by the application with the PID ...
    Close the application before trying again

    That didn't do it. Yast starts, but the software installation module hangs. How do I close the application with the PID... ?
