    Default problem with install software

    In my openSUSE-11.2 OS I was upgrading softwares, when suddenly
    the application quit and the machine crashed. When after
    rebooting I started Install Software, the message came
    'Accessing the Package Management Failed
    System Management is locked to the application with pid 7081
    (/usr/sbin/packagekitd)
    Close this application before trying again.'

    How shall I do this?
    Thanks.
    P.Rudra.

    Sorry, I didn't get it. I switched off the laptop. I restarted
    the machine afterwards. The problem is persisting. Only it
    is now pid 5511.
    Kindly elaborate the path to be followed.

    In kde, the updater applet is in the lower right of your screen in the system tray.
    I meant to say quit the applet
