    Default software manager will not start

    I'm very new to Suse... Opensuse 11.2 (gnome) is the first version of this distro I have ever ran. For the past few years I have been running Ubuntu. I have not had time to master the command lines for suse yet... So please bear with me if I ask stupid questions...

    My software manager has been working fine for the last week, but today it just stopped loading. It gives this as the reason why:

    System management is locked by the application with pid 6652 (zypper).
    Close this application before trying again.


    I have tried rebooting, and it still doesn't work... Any ideas?

    There is an updater applet that runs in the system tray. That is causing this. I always quit this application and choose not to have it start at boot. I then manually check for updates with the software manager.

    You can always choose to start the updater applet again if you find you want it.

    alright I did this, and the error message went away but it still stalls and won't load. It stalls on "Load configured repositories: downloading: http://opensuse.org/.../repodata/repomd.xml:"

    I'm getting this too. I think there is something wrong on the servers. That or there is a bug in the recent updates.

    I'm looking in to it and will come back as soon as I can.

    openSUSE Download Mirrors - 11.2

    Apparently the redirector is down. Wait it out or you can switch mirrors.
