Thread: Error " y2base " ?

  1. #1

    Question Error " y2base " ?

    I got this error:
    " System mangement is locked by the application with pid 3717 (/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base) ".

    I am supposed to close this y2base before trying again. But I am a Linux novice and didn't even know that I ever opened this file or what PID 3818 is. Nor do I know how to close this.

    Thank you

    Right click the updater applet and configure not to start at boot
    Reboot and try again what you need to do.

    perhaps you might benefit from some reading, here would be a good
    place to begin:

    Official openSUSE 11.1 Start-Up guide
    http://tinyurl.com/nrn953

    basic concepts:
    http://en.opensuse.org/Concepts

    when you search for openSUSE answers on google it is good to use this
    in the search string:

    sitepensuse.org

    if it is a general Linux question, it is real good to begin your
    search from the special search blank at http://www.google.com/linux

    I found the updater applet in the panel tray and disabled to run at startup.
    After reboot the error is still there

    I need to instll KeePass version 2. On their site they say that I need mono2.2 or higher. the mono site says this: "This distribution supports installing packages via Zypper. Add the following repository to Zypper:
    Index of /pub/mono/download-stable/openSUSE_11.1
    To add the repository, execute the following commands (as root):
    zypper addrepo <URL> mono-stable
    zypper refresh --repo mono-stable
    zypper dist-upgrade --repo mono-stable"

    So I wanted to see if I already have mono. But the Software Manager is locked.

    here is the URL to the 'top ' in terminal : http://www.picpile.net/ims/pic_37551O67/45716.jpg

    Now I also have trouble to copy/paste or cut/paste (KLipper appears to have a mind of its own)

    And I cannot Restart or shut down (I have to do a hard shut down).

    With all these problems, I think that reloading Suse may be a solution. Currently it is on an extended partition. Would I delete the individual 3 partitions before starting the installation cd?

    Thanks
